Mission Statement

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, widely recognized as one of New York's premier human services providers, is a 127-year-old settlement house that provides an extensive array of effective and integrated services--social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness--which significantly improve the lives of 15,000 people in need each year, ages 3 to 103, on the East Side of Manhattan. Our clients include older adults, homeless and formerly homeless adults, children and families, recent immigrants, disabled persons, adult learners and thousands more. For information on Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, please visit our website at or connect with us on Facebook at


Lenox Hill Neighborhood House was founded in 1894 by the Alumnae Association of Normal College (now known as Hunter College of the City University of New York) as a free kindergarten for the children of indigent immigrants. Since then, we have remained at the forefront of community advocacy and social and educational change.

Wonderful atmosphere and a quick hand to help! Less then an hour of volunteer time to enjoy the scene and give back- a true pleasure. Thank you!

I worked in the computer lab at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House. They have great classes that teach adults basic and more advanced computer skills. The people who work and volunteer there are very dedicated.
