Wilson Major Morris

Community Center

At the Morris Community Center, our mission is to make sure that all people, especially seniors living in the Hamilton Heights, West Harlem, and Manhattanville neighborhoods, live in decent affordable housing. And that they get the necessary supportive services like nutritional, cultural and other services that add to their quality of life.

We provide social, educational, health and housing services to the elderly, individuals and families who are in financial need. Particularly for those who are at 90% or below median income. Our goal is to advocate and put in place programs that lead to community renewal through the preservation, stabilization and development of affordable housing opportunities for local residents.

As part of our primary mission, we will provide preservation services to fight housing decay and abandonment by helping area residents in code enforcement, monitoring building repairs for elderly homeowners, residential emergency services and providing assistance to residents in applying for grants, tax-incentives related to housing and energy improvement programs.

We will also actively seek opportunities for developing affordable housing for seniors, low-income families and families with special needs.

The Wilson Major Morris Community Center, Inc. (WMMCC) is a non-profit corporation; located in the Hamilton Heights section of Manhattan, New York. It was established in 1970 from a recognized need to fill a void in the delivery of Human Services to the residents of the Hamilton Heights Area and the entire County of New York.

It’s our ongoing goal to develop programs and services to meet those needs. We intend to accomplish this by:

• Providing the best quality supportive services that improves the well being of senior residents of the community, (i.e.) senior nutrition, senior advocacy, etc.

• Developing and promoting activities that improve the quality of life for all residents of the Hamilton Heights Community.

• Assisting with the provision and development, stabilization, preservation, renovation and renewal of decent and affordable housing for senior and community residents. We know we have what it takes to help you enjoy your success - all day, every day.
