About the Organization:
Community Help in Park Slope, Inc. (CHiPS), is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit soup kitchen and women’s shelter in Park Slope, bordering Gowanus, that has provided hot meals to the hungry and homeless since 1971. CHiPS began providing transitional housing and support services for young mothers and their infants in the late 1990s, after the purchase of the CHiPS building at 200 4th Ave. CHiPS currently houses up to 8 pregnant and postpartum homeless young women at a time, along with their infants, in its Frances Residence above the soup kitchen. Last year, CHiPS served approximately 103,000 meals to its neighbors in need.
