Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is a multi-service community-based organization that serves people in need on the East Side of Manhattan and on Roosevelt Island. Founded in 1894 as a free kindergarten for the children of indigent immigrants and as one of the first settlement houses in the nation, Lenox Hill Neighborhood House is the oldest and largest provider of social, legal and educational services on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Each year, we assist more than 20,000 individuals and families who "live, work, go to school or access services" from 59th Street to 143rd Street and on Roosevelt Island. We operate out of five East Side sites located between 54th Street and 102nd Street, with our headquarters located on East 70th Street.
We have dozens of different programs, more than 150 staff members and over 600 regular volunteers who work throughout our nine departments: Adult Education, Children & Family Services, Fitness & Aquatics Center, Food Services, Homeless & Housing Services, Legal Advocacy & Organizing, Older Adult Services, Transportation Services and Visual & Performing Arts.
