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.

Members can access case management services at the centers for help obtaining benefits and entitlements, and other social work needs. The Daily Money Management Program helps seniors capable of making financial decisions, yet who need help with day to day financial tasks such as writing checks and balancing check books, organizing bills, monitoring monthly income and expenses, or protecting themselves from financial abuse. Greenwich House also partners with West Village Houses and Westbeth Artists Housing to provide case management services.

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.
