SENIOR CENTER MEAL SERVICE UPDATE:
The Grab and Go lunch program is canceled as of Monday, March 30, 2020; DFTA has converted meal distribution to home delivered meals, to follow safety precautions during the COVID-19 emergency. If you need information about food delivery options or other help, please contact your center director or email Greenwich House at firstname.lastname@example.org at any time.
Please continue to check this page for updated information on meal distribution.
We now have online classes. Click here for information about our programming.
Please Note: If you have a FEMA backpack distributed in 2012 at Greenwich House, this is a good time to use it. There are supplies that can be useful during the pandemic – such as masks, eye protection, emergency food and water.
We are sorry to share the sad news that Center on the Square’s dedicated volunteer and friend, Beverly Smith, has passed away. Read “In Memoriam: Beverly Smith” here.
Thank you to the partners that have been providing crucial help to Greenwich House and our community during this time:
Senator Brad Hoylman and his team
Community Board 2
Speaker Corey Johnson and his team
Assembly Member Deborah Glick and her team
Greenwich House Arts and Education Staff
Partially funded by the New York City Department for the Aging (DFTA), Greenwich House’s four senior centers are a vital resource for many in the community. Our centers offer social, educational, physical and cultural programs to engage members, build community and promote healthy and active lifestyles. Every weekday, each center serves a hot lunch that meets DFTA’s nutritional requirements.
Along with regularly scheduled weekly programming, each center fills their monthly calendars with special events. Thanks to partnerships with cultural institutions, local politicians and private foundations, this includes access to exciting arts programming and opportunities. Free courses are taught by professional artists, and chances to see performances are provided throughout the year. Other activities include visits to cultural institutions or shopping trips, services like free haircuts or tax assistance, or cooking demonstrations by guest teachers.
You can find each center’s monthly activities calendar and lunch menu here.
All centers are accessible with elevators or ramps (Our Lady of Pompeii is the only center that is ADA compliant). Center on the Square, Judith C. White Center and Our Lady of Pompeii are designated cooling centers. Each center has a computer lab with regularly scheduled hours for computer help.
