Merchant's Description

Greenwich House first opened its doors on Thanksgiving Day in 1902 with the mission to improve the living conditions among the predominately immigrant population in Greenwich Village, at that time New York's most congested neighborhood. Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch, Jacob Riis, Carl Schurz, Felix Adler and other social reformers came together to help immigrants adjust to a new world and improve the quality of life in the community.

For the past half a century, Greenwich House has strived to contemporize the vision of Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch by being responsive to new and growing complexities of urban life. The House has offered continuity to its neighbors by sustaining the programs which have proven to be of persistent need and value. In the last decade, Greenwich House implemented new programs to meet the urgencies in health, education, and child care. With the support of private and public sources, initiatives such as the Children's Safety Project for abused youngsters and their families, the Primary Care Initiative, the AIDS Mental Health Project, Arts-In-Education located in public elementary schools, the Alcoholism Treatment Program, the Halfway House for Recovering Alcoholics and the Parole Treatment Program have helped more people, in more ways and in more neighborhoods.
