Goddard Riverside Community Center, a not-for-profit organization, works to meet people’s basic needs - food, shelter, education - and to bring them together for mutual aid and social action, and to celebrate our richness as a society. We build community, change lives and support New Yorkers in need through services such as early childhood and youth programs, tutoring and college counseling, employment readiness, supportive housing, and assistance to homeless and older adults in Manhattan. Goddard Riverside Community Center embraces the potential and worth of each individual, connecting them across social, economic and other barriers, and acknowledges the importance of a strong community.
Our twenty-six programs are offered at sites in and around the Upper West Side, West Harlem and Lower Manhattan. Within each program area is a continuum of educational, health and social services and recreational activities that help participants achieve personal goals, acquire basics life skills, integrate within a community and become more effective advocates for what they believe. The organization also develops and manages affordable housing, provides resources for tenants rights and meal assistance for the elderly, as well as organizes a range of community arts events.
