At Greenwich House, we help people overcome their most difficult challenges — trauma from child abuse and domestic violence, substance use disorder and addiction to opioids, and coping with complex emotions faced as we age. For over four decades, we have been pioneers in providing trauma counseling for children, mental healthcare for home-bound seniors and treatment for addiction. From our founding, opening our doors to those in need of healthcare has been a cornerstone of our mission to help New Yorkers lead more fulfilling lives.
ü For children, adolescents and adults, The Children’s Safety Project provides counseling and other support services to children and families that have been affected by physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence, and other trauma.
ü For adults, behavioral health support is accessed at our two clinics – the Chemical Dependency Program and Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program. These community-based centers offer medication treatment, counseling, case management services and vocational training for a caring, holistic approach to recovery from addiction.
ü For older adults, the Senior Health and Consultation Center is a geriatric mental health program that provides counseling and health services to help seniors cope with the unique stresses of aging. Home aides help older adults age in place when they might otherwise be institutionalized.
Founded in 1902 as a settlement house to help New York’s increasing immigrant population adjust to life in a new country, today Greenwich House offers programs in the arts, education and social services that provide thousands of New Yorkers with personal enrichment and cultural experiences.
When we envision the future, we see a world where the arts are valued as much as the sciences. We see a world where anyone can access mental health services without stigma. We see a world where our neighbors continue to fight for each other’s rights. We see you, alongside us, creating a better life for our communities and a hopeful future for our children.
Our work would not be possible without support from our community. Every dollar you contribute ensures that we can continue to help New Yorkers lead more fulfilling lives through arts education, senior services and behavioral health programs. Help us continue this important work.
