Goddard Riverside Community Center is one of New York City’s leading human service organizations. We work to meet people’s basic needs – food, shelter, education – and to bring them together for mutual aid, social action, and to celebrate our richness as a society.
Through 27 programs at 21 sites on the Upper West Side and in West Harlem, we engage people of all ages and backgrounds. Our program areas include: children, youth and families; homeless people; older adults; and advocacy and tenant assistance. We also develop and manage affordable housing, and organize a range of community arts and events. Within each program area is a continuum of services and activities that helps participants achieve personal goals, connect with a community, and become more effective advocates for what they believe.
Our diverse programs share a strong value system and belief in citizen participation. The agency is committed to bringing people together across potential barriers of culture, ethnicity, race, class, age, sexuality and personal circumstances. Our programs are catalysts for social and economic change, advancing a vision of a more just and compassionate society.
