Senior Program of the Month - November: HIV Long-Term Survivors Discussion Group

HIV concerns are changing rapidly. The crisis today is much different than it was in the height of the 1980s, or even just five years ago. Awareness and education campaigns have decreased the stigma attached to the disease. No longer considered the “gay plague,” there has been a sustained growth in recognition of and resources for the treatment and prevention among at risk groups including prison populations, those who use intravenous drugs and the transgender community.  Clinically, new pre-exposure treatments can reduce the chance of contraction while increased understanding and availability of antiretroviral drugs can drastically increase the length and quality of life for those who do.    Read More»

How a Changing Community Stays the Same

This month, 113 years ago, an enthusiastic woman moved in to a high stooped row house on Jones Street determined to uplift the neighborhood from within. The neighborhood she moved into was an urban corner of ramshackle tenements, scarce trees, insanitary institutions and myriad other nuisances including the occasional cow; its chaotic street grid passed over for more prosperous opportunities uptown. The woman recruited her friends and her new neighbors and over Thanksgiving dinner founded one of the nation’s first settlement houses. It was dedicated to helping all segments of the community lead more fulfilling lives.  The woman was Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch. The neighborhood was Greenwich Village. And the organization was Greenwich House.    Read More»

Greenwich House Fights Learning Loss through Unequal Access to After-School and Camp Programs

It’s called learning loss. According to Harris Cooper, a Duke University Psychology Professor, children learn at the same pace during the school year. It’s unequal access to quality after-school and summer programming that cause children to fall behind. Children who do not participate in structured activities that expose them to new challenges and experiences over the summer, for example, lose an average of two months’ worth of reading and math skills.   Read More»
