    Services for the UnderServed (SUS) is a New York-based nonprofit organization that provides housing and support services to 25,000 individuals and their families living in New York City and Long Island.  SUS believes every New Yorker has the right to lead a life of purpose.

Our commitment to continuous quality improvement impacts the lives of our clients and communities while contributing to the development of our employees.

The aide will conduct hourly house/room rounds, record time and findings in the communication log book on all shifts and issues verbal and written warnings to clients and assign appropriate consequences.
