Letter from the Board Chair and Executive Director Dear Friends,

We all know that New York City can be a difficult place to live. Challenges abound that make it hard to break through the isolation that often accompanies a variety of life stages and lifestyles; aging, access to treatment for an addiction, or resolution of difficult family circumstances all bring on stresses that can get in the way of daily living. At Greenwich House, our job is to help people overcome those obstacles by promoting the Five Pillars of Well-Being* and empowering those in need to define and pursue their personal goals. Each year, Greenwich House’s social service and arts education programs help 15,000 New Yorkers lead healthier and more productive lives by embracing positive emotions, engaging in challenging activities, developing positive relationships, accomplishing goals and finding meaning by being part of a larger community. As a neighborhood hub of activity and resources, Greenwich House is home to a diverse group of New Yorkers seeking to enrich their lives. Greenwich House epitomizes—and helps sustain—the very community that makes our neighborhood a great place to live, work or visit. We invite you to learn more about Greenwich House and the people we serve. We hope that you will strengthen your ties to Greenwich House in order to achieve your own personal goals as well as support our efforts to help those in our community in need. Sincerely,

Samir Hussein Chair

Roy Leavitt Executive Director and CEO *Based on the principles of Dr. Martin Seligman, Director of the Penn Positive Psychology Center and Zellerbach Family Professor of Psychology in the Penn Department of Psychology.

Featured Accomplishments Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program

Greenwich House After-School Program

After a lease cancellation and a complicated construction project, Greenwich House re-opened its much needed Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program (MMTP) on December 28, 2013. For nearly two years, the main MMTP location was temporarily closed and relied on facilities at Beth Israel Hospital to maintain client support systems during this period.

In order to maintain a valuable community resource, Greenwich House successfully integrated the After-School program, taken over from the Children’s Aid Society when it closed the Philip Coltoff Center. The program welcomed over 75 students in its first year of operation, with popular and engaging classes in architecture, science, and photography, among others. Greenwich House has been able to provide scholarships to one in every three students in the program.

MMTP’s primary objective is to help individuals overcome addiction to narcotics and other substances. In addition, the program provides medical care, psychiatric evaluation, individual, family and group counseling, and vocational services. The MMTP is a leading example of how Greenwich House works tirelessly to promote the five pillars of well-being for all clients and their families in therapy.


Program Highlights Underpinning Greenwich House’s 130 year history is the enduring commitment to help individuals and families lead more fulfilling lives by providing the assistance they need to realize their goals. A decision to be a part of Greenwich House, in whatever way one chooses, enriches the community and enables opportunities in which to grow, prosper and live up to one’s potential.

Arts and Education Greenwich House Pottery In 2013 the Clay in Culture exhibition series took on a new name, Ceramics Now, recognizing its contemporary significance in the art world in New York. With the decline of craft ceramics galleries in the City, and the importance of “craft” being overshadowed by “Fine Art” the Pottery’s Ceramics Now series is filling the void, as one of the few galleries dedicated solely to ceramic art. After-School and Summer Arts Camp In 2013 Greenwich House granted tuition assistance to 33% of the participating families in the After-School program, making the program available to a diverse population of children largely from the neighborhood public schools, providing them with a place to develop deeper and more meaningful relationships.

Greenwich House Music School In June 2013, Greenwich House Music School welcomed its new director, Rachel Black. A native of Mississippi and a classically trained actor and MFA graduate of the American Conservatory Theatre, Rachel was the General Manager of Summer Stage, New York City’s largest free performing arts festival before taking the helm of GHMS. Rachel’s primary focus is to introduce new techniques for the children’s early enrichment program, including Suzuki Violin, as well as strengthen group and private lessons, and elevate the Music School’s concert series. Under Rachel’s direction, GHMS is poised to lead a new generation of students of all ages by fostering a positive sense of community and individual accomplishment. Barrow Street Nursery School Recognizing the demand for programming for toddlers, BSNS created a program designed around children who are just turning 2. The program includes parent participation in the classroom as children engage in activities, such art, music, yoga, story time, cooking, and creative movement. After separating, parents engage in discussion based workshops with our developmental psychologist on topics such as discipline, language development, and sibling relationships.



Social Services

Senior Centers

Children’s Safety Project

The Showtime and Chorus Groups, comprised of more than 40 center members, performed many plays and chorales such as Music! Music! Music!, Holly Jolly Christmas, Halloween Horror and A Tribute to Irving Berlin engaging a variety of senior centers throughout New York to participate in and attend performances.

In 2013 CSP provided 2,142 treatment sessions to its 142 primary clients. Of those, CSP’s bilingual therapist serves some 12 families in Spanish annually, about half of her caseload. CSP works to meld the five pillars of well-being that have often been stripped from these families, nurturing a new sense of stability.

Senior Health and Consultation

Chemical Dependency Program

Over 40% of SHCC clients received home visits on a regular basis to help manage the emotional and physical challenges that come with aging in New York. The team successfully found housing for eight seniors who needed to move from walk-up buildings to ones with elevators. These changes have proven to be instrumental in allowing seniors to continue living their lives on their own terms and boosting positive emotions.

In keeping up with the changing technological times, CDP has been transitioning from paper to computerized documentation for preadmission, admission and treatment plans. The implementation of the new technology has streamlined the admissions process. The goal is to fully transition to paperless charts so that staff can spend more time with clients, helping them work towards accomplishing their goals.

Case Management

Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program

Support for Hurricane Sandy Victims: Most Greenwich House seniors suffered dearly from the impact of Hurricane Sandy; many were left without hot water, heat or electricity. Our four senior centers also lost power. The case management team quickly moved into action providing meaningful support to the complex needs of over 300 seniors that were brought on by the hurricane, such as replacing critical items like mattresses for those whose apartments were completely flooded, as well as lost eye glasses and hearing aids for many others.

The Patient Advisory Committee at MMTP developed a new Patient Welcome packet for incoming patients, introducing them to the Committee, the Methadone is Recovery Group (a peer self-help group), as well as informing them of what to expect in treatment from the patient’s perspective. MMTP provides the building blocks of the five pillars on the road to recovery. 7
