Dear Friends, 

Greenwich House opened its doors in 1902 thanks to the generosity of a small group of donors, volunteers and community activists. From that first day to today, we remain a center of information and service, providing social, medical, cultural and educational services that improve the quality of life for anyone who comes through our doors. 

The generosity of our members, neighborhoods and engaged supporters has allowed us to adapt and enhance our programming with the changing times to continue to carry out our mission and meet the most basic needs of our community. 

This year alone our After-School and Summer Arts Camp responded to a call for affordable, family-friendly entertainment by hosting free rooftop movie nights; the Children’s Safety Project, reacting to the changing face of youth trauma, began practicing Trauma-Informed Care and training in Attachment, Regulation and Competency therapy to better serve the youngest of clients; and the Music School’s new partnership with the famed Creative Music Studio helped expand the School’s programming into musical improvisation.  

Without your help, none of this, or any of our work would be possible. 

Please support us with a financial gift this holiday season so we can continue our responsive work. Remember that when you give a gift to Greenwich House, you are giving the opportunity to lead a more fulfilling life. 

Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season.


Roy Leavitt 
Executive Director
