BUILDING OUR FUTURE A MESSAGE FROM OUR E XECUTIVE DIRECTOR Dear Friends: The past year has been one of crisis and clarity, tragedy and triumph; a time unlike any other in our City’s and nation’s history. As our City navigated the turbulence caused by the pandemic, we did what the staff of Greenwich House has done time and again throughout a century of health, economic, and social crises—we rose to the occasion and we did our part. That meant remaining active and open, continuing to provide essential services, and creating new ways to support our neighborhood and our neighbors. We knew people were counting on us. Our rich mix of early educational and student enrichment programs became even more essential to parents and students; our award-winning senior-serving programs turned into lifelines for those facing heightened health and social challenges; the life-saving mental health and behavioral health services offered to children and adults demanded an immediate pivot to addressing life from a distance; and our arts programming became more important than ever to New Yorkers seeking a positive, creative, and constructive outlet for their anxiety, loneliness, and stress. As we continue to respond to the challenges of our time, we are also focused on creating a roadmap for our future success. We are reimagining our mental health services, expanding important programming for youth and seniors, and recommitting to the creative solutions that build on our expertise to respond to the evolving needs of children, families, adults and older adults across our neighborhoods. This was certainly not the year I was expecting when I joined Greenwich House as the fifth CEO in the organization’s 117-year history. But, as I look back on this daunting period, I am filled with deep admiration for members of my new team—the Greenwich House staff—who work tirelessly as frontline heroes. And, I am grateful to the network of friends, partners, and supporters who stood with us every step of the way. Thank you,

Darren Bloch



A MESSAGE FROM OUR BOARD CHAIR Dear Friends: Greenwich House has always existed to support our families, our neighbors, and our community. But, it is in times defined by crisis and great need— as was 2020—that the organization’s impact is felt most profoundly. This year, as the newly elected Board Chair, I saw up close Greenwich House’s ability to respond to the needs of our community. It is a testament to the commitment and compassion of our staff, volunteers, and supporters. It was not easy. We have had to adjust our operations across the organization, be innovative, and make hard decisions. We asked more from our staff and our supporters. The result is undeniable: we helped children, families, seniors, people experiencing mental health concerns, addiction challenges, and more manage through the pandemic. I could not be more proud, nor more BOARD OF DIRECTORS grateful to be part of this work and the Greenwich CHAIR House community. Jan-Willem van den Dorpel On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to express our gratitude to every single person—especially the amazing Greenwich House staff and our individual, foundation, corporate and government funders—who helped ensure we could meet the needs of our members and our community in 2020. We all have a sense of responsibility and shared ownership of the Greenwich House legacy and our larger community. The road to a post-pandemic recovery will be difficult. Thousands of individuals will continue to rely on us for help navigating challenges and overcoming obstacles. Together, we can continue to build on our work to serve and support our neighbors, our neighborhood, and the broader needs of New Yorkers. With gratitude,

Jan-Willem van den Dorpel, Chair

Greenwich House Throughout the Years

1902 GREENWICH HOUSE IS FOUNDED BY MARY KINGSBURY SIMKHOVITCH with a mission to improve immigrants’ living conditions. The first board members and trustees included social reformers like Jacob Riis and Felix Adler, the father of American anthropology Franz Boas, noted economists Edwin R. A. Seligman and Henry Seager, and future founder of the Whitney Museum of American Art, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney.





GREENWICH HOUSE SCHOOL OF MUSIC IS ESTABLISHED. It became a haven for avant-garde composers and musicians.

OPENS THE FIRST OFFICIAL DAY-CARE CENTER to help a new community of working mothers.

LAUNCHES SLEEP AWAY CAMP, with various camps in operation until 1991.





THE POTTERY DEPARTMENT IS ESTABLISHED. Artists gained recognition, with works exhibited at the 1939 World’s Fair and as part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art collections.




Since its founding, Greenwich House has been responding to the evolving needs of its members and the greater community. In good times and bad­­­—World Wars, pandemics, an epidemic, the Great Depression, and multiple recessions­­­—Greenwich House has been a home people can count on to meet their educational, cultural, health and wellness, and social needs. From the beginning, the organization established itself as a pioneer social service agency that launched first-ofits-kind programs in response to emerging individual and community problems. It committed itself to the arts as a dynamic stimulus for cultural enrichment and individual growth. And it transformed family life by developing inspirational and educational programs that provided opportunity for youth and support for parents. And the organization continues to build on its legacy to be a premier community organization today.

GREENWICH HOUSE DURING THE PANDEMIC Our members, students, clients, and broader community have relied on our services through blue skies and grey. When the COVID pandemic fundamentally destabilized life for New Yorkers, we knew our work would be more needed and important than ever. We knew we had to continue to support those who relied on us—and others who would be seeking us out for the first time.


Supporting Our Seniors Seniors were hit hardest by the pandemic and thousands of them were counting on our Greenwich House Senior Centers to address food insecurity, safety, isolation, and more. The compounding tragedy of COVID was that the very places that provided community and connection for seniors were now themselves creating a risk, and we had to immediately rethink how we provide services from a distance. We built partnerships with organizations, including Meals on Wheels and New York Community Trust, to get hot meals and groceries to hundreds of home-bound seniors; our case managers worked the phones, making wellness calls and helping seniors navigate the complex system of benefits and entitlements; and we launched a new Online Learning Center, a hub for virtual classes and events, resources, and more to replace our in-person classes and combat social isolation.


Keeping Addiction Recovery Doors Open Many of the most vulnerable New Yorkers, those fighting and making strides to reclaim lives lost to addiction, relied on us as an essential lifeline when the pandemic hit. We did not let them down. Our staff of frontline medical and counseling heroes kept our Methadone Maintenance Treatment Program and Chemical Dependency Program open—in person and online. Our physical doors were open to anyone who wanted safe in-person services. We also rapidly transitioned to telehealth services for those who could not come in. Additionally, our health aides pivoted to make home visits to their most vulnerable members who needed medication and treatment.

Shifting Mental Health Services to Telehealth

Supporting Students and Parents

The pandemic’s impact on individuals’ mental health will be felt for years to come, especially among the children, families, and seniors in our mental health programs. These individuals were already dealing with significant trauma, and we worried about the additional blow of COVID undermining their recovery, spirits, and resilience. Both our Children’s Safety Project (CSP) and the Senior Health and Consultation Center (SHCC) pivoted to serve clients via telehealth, ensuring the kind of continuity of service that is key to long-term therapy success. And we created several new support groups to help address the specific stresses and concerns caused by the significant hardships of the pandemic.

When schools shut their doors in the spring, and summer camps struggled with new COVID protocols, parents were left scrambling to find trusted resources that supported learning, enrichment, and important social engagements. Greenwich House Youth Community Center (YCC) stepped up to the plate. Throughout the spring, YCC staff reimagined Homework Help services to provide a live, online support system; we opened our STEAM summer camp with enhanced COVID safety protocols; and we launched a new all-day Student Enrichment Program for the new school year, providing families with important care for students. Each program expanded or created during this crisis provided children with much needed joy and respite from the stresses and isolation of the pandemic—and gave parents a break along the way.


Maintaining the Joy of Art Greenwich House Music School and Greenwich House Pottery found creative solutions to continue to bring the arts to their students. Within a week of the city shutting down, the Music School transitioned a century-old, in-person instruction model into online learning. This ensured the cathartic outlet of music and song for kids, public school students, and adults was not interrupted. At the Pottery, the transition to lessons and learning from a distance was even more challenging, but our team rallied to build partnerships with local merchants for clay distribution. We also built a catalog of lessons and lectures, expanding offerings into art history, theory, and lectures on special topics in ceramics. Now these are available to anyone looking to ceramics for calm and constructive energy.



For over thirty years, Greenwich House has been a home for New Yorkers struggling with mental health concerns, helping children, families, and seniors overcome the impacts of trauma. That work was more important than ever in 2020, as the pandemic created new challenges for the people we serve. Throughout a tumultuous period, we were able to continue providing life saving care and connection to critical resources to our neighbors in need. We are excited to build on this work in the coming years.

JANE Jane was struggling to provide daily care to her life partner, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and whose cognitive function was in rapid decline. Her own physical health was deteriorating too, making her role as a sole caretaker very difficult. Jane began to consider options for the future, and came to Greenwich House’s Senior Health and Consultation Center for support. Jane’s therapist connected her to resources for persons with dementia, and to an eldercare lawyer to discuss life planning directives. With this support system in place, she decided to move herself and her partner into an assisted living facility close to her family.

PLAY THERAPY Since 1987, our Children’s Safety Project has been providing traumainformed counseling to children and families who have experienced physical or sexual abuse, domestic violence, and other life-altering events. The progress our participants made in their recovery was threatened by the pandemic, as was our ability to care for them. Our counseling sessions were forced to move online, but it was difficult to get children to sit through

therapy over Zoom. Staff responded by making sessions more dynamic, adding breathing exercises, drawing, and movement, which helped increase focus and relieve stress. These teletherapy sessions also gave us an opportunity to see into the homes of the children we serve to better connect therapy to homelife. They also gave many children, who were experiencing isolation, a connection to the world outside their home.

“The support I received from Greenwich House allowed me to make the best choice for myself and my partner,” Jane says. Though she’s moved away, she still enjoys participating in our virtual classes, especially opera with teacher Simón Saad.

Building Our Expertise As the city begins to grapple with a looming

mental health crisis brought on by the pandemic, we are looking for new ways to expand our services to meet the growing needs of our neighbors. We’ve taken the first step by combining our two flagship programs—the Children’s Safety Project and Senior Health and Consultation Center. Bringing all of our experts together in the same space will allow us to provide the same trauma-informed care to our existing clients, while expanding our services to adults, families, and couples. The years ahead will be challenging for many in our community and we are ready to reach more New Yorkers with inclusive, expert care.




Ever since Greenwich House started an “Over 65 Club” in 1955, we have been a center for senior living at its fullest and most fulfilling. Today, we are an established leader in senior services, earning awards for our work, being sought out for input and partnerships, and even being chosen as the subject of a documentary about senior life, Somewhere to Be. Our work with seniors was even more vital during the pandemic as we expanded our reach to serve the city’s most vulnerable.

A NETWORK OF CARE Within the first few tumultuous weeks of the pandemic, our Senior Services team established an effective system to reach out to our nearly 2,000 senior members. Staff made regular wellness calls to help members combat isolation and access food and services. The need was abundant and we knew we had to reach even more older adults who would not have the support of a senior center. That effort led to the Neighbor Network, a partnership with Heights & Hills, the New York Civic Engagement

Table, the Office of State Senator Brad Hoylman, and the Office of NYC Council Member Brad Lander. The program connects volunteers from around the City with seniors in Downtown Manhattan and Brooklyn. Thanks to a grant from New York Community Trust, we trained over 200 volunteers who made more than 6,000 wellness calls, connecting seniors with our case management services, our Senior Health and Consultation Center, nutrition support, and other vital resources.

Bibi had never done comedy, but a shared sense of humor with her late husband drew her to The Comedy Workshop at Center on the Square, which launched just two weeks before the pandemic forced our classes to go virtual. Not only does the Monday morning class brighten Bibi’s mood, it took on a deeper meaning after the pandemic began. “If you can’t laugh at things, especially dark things, you’re not really alive. It’s a survival strategy, really,” said Bibi. She has felt deeply supported by the group, which typically includes 25 participants and their teacher, comedian Jo Firestone. Like many seniors, Bibi has become more comfortable with using technology, particularly Zoom, to maintain a sense of community and belonging. “I haven’t met most of my fellow classmates in person, but we’re all good friends now, and I’m so thankful for them.”

Better than Bingo Today’s older adults need more from Senior Centers than bridge and bingo—

they demand expansive programming that creates a lively community where they feel supported and satisfied. Our Senior Centers have long featured classes like Chinese painting, jam sessions, and photography. New programs like The Comedy Workshop with comedian Jo Firestone, the Senior Choir in collaboration with Greenwich House Music School, and dance workshops with Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo meet the desires of today’s seniors. In January 2020, LifetimeArts acknowledged our premier programming with the Creative Aging Award, honoring Senior Center Director Laura Marceca’s work with Center on the Square. “It is not just about learning new skills, which alone is inspiring,” says Laura. “The real gift is the opportunity to develop new passions and connections.” Laura also presented during the LifetimeArts Creative Aging course in 2019 and 2020 and spoke at the Live On NY Conference in 2019, emerging as a leader in the field of senior services. ANNUAL REPORT 2020


SUBSTANCE USE DISORDER SERVICES Greenwich House has a legacy of innovation when it comes to substance use disorder services. Half a century ago we opened the state’s first psychiatric clinic exclusively for individuals addicted to narcotics followed by one of the City’s first methadone clinics. Since then, we have continued creating groundbreaking programs with safe and welcoming environments that support people in recovery. Today, we are using new technologies and techniques to reach more individuals entering recovery.

RUBEN After years of substance use disorder, Ruben started methadone treatment to reclaim his life. That is when he found his passion and decided to dedicate his life to helping others overcome their substance use issues.

A SAFETY NET In July of 2020, several local clinics facing severe economic and logistical challenges were forced to close or consolidate services, leaving over 1,200 individuals actively working to address their substance use disorder without a provider. People needed care, and we knew we had to act fast.

Despite unprecedented and difficult circumstances—and the safety precautions dictated by the pandemic—our team at the Methadone Maintenance Treatment program was able to enroll more than 200 new patients into care in 30 days. This created a safety net that ensured a smooth transition and continuity of services—key to long-term patient success.

Ruben, who has been in recovery since 2006, became a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor and a Certified Recovery Peer Advocate. He joined the Greenwich House team in March. Today, he helps clients with everything from remaining engaged in treatment, to obtaining and keeping housing, to accessing overdose prevention training. A big part of his job is building relationships, which he does by sharing his lived experience.“People open up more to someone who they know has a past and understands what they’re going through,” Ruben says. “I’m here to provide hope and let them know that they’re not alone in their treatment and recovery process, because I’m here with them.”

Expanding Our Reach The stress and isolation of the pandemic have led

to a rise in use of illicit drugs and alcohol as people look for ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. Individuals in recovery are finding the additional stressors of the pandemic triggering, which can often lead to a relapse. The impacts of substance use disorder will be felt long after society has been reopened and the last New Yorker has been vaccinated. There will be a tremendous increase in the need for substance use disorder services in the years ahead, and we are preparing to meet that need. We have been credentialed to provide telehealth services, enabling us to meet people where they are. We have also implemented a new hybrid group model in which staff and clients connect via our telehealth platform so they can remain socially distanced while still receiving the benefits of group counseling. ANNUAL REPORT 2020



Greenwich House was one of the first organizations to provide childcare for the growing number of women entering the workforce during the early 1900s. We have been meeting the changing needs of parents—and children—ever since. In a chaotic year, we continued to ensure our youth programming was a dependable resource for families. After School and Summer Camp rebranded as the Greenwich House Youth Community Center to reflect expanding programming, and Barrow Street Nursery School continued to be one of the most sought-after early childhood education programs.

PENELOPE Parents love watching their children grow at Greenwich House. Julie May’s daughter, Penelope, attends Summer Camp, the Student Enrichment Program, and After-School classes five days a week. “I’m thankful for the warm, safe environment where my daughter can spend her school days. She is able to enjoy time with her friends, which she desperately missed. The counselors are very supportive, but they’re also helping her develop her own sense of responsibility. It’s a wonderful place that has changed my life.”

ALL DAY, EVERY DAY Greenwich House’s after-school classes, holiday camps, and summer camp have long been loved for their enriching STEAM programming and welcoming community. During a year of remote learning, unpredictable school schedules, and a work-fromhome reality, we knew students and parents needed additional support. After launching the Youth Community Center, we started the Student Enrichment Program, a daytime space for kids who need academic and social

support, and parents who need childcare. The program provides students in kindergarten through fifth grade with remote learning support, enrichment activities, and recreation in small groups. Flexible enrollment allows for families to adapt to ever-changing schedules. Parents have been grateful for the relief. “The classes are fantastic. The staff is exceptional,” said mom Andrea Steele. “My girls have grown and flourished at Greenwich House.”

Nursery News For over thirty years, Barrow Street Nursery School’s progressive approach to

education has prioritized a curriculum that is responsive to the needs of children and families. The ability to rapidly adopt was key to transforming the school practically overnight. Nicole Pappas-Ferrin, who had been Director for a few months prior to the pandemic, led her team through a full shift to run two different schools simultaneously—one for in-person and one for virtual students. A rich schedule of online classes enabled families to drop in as needed, while in-person classes supported those in need of on-site learning. Guest speakers were added for virtual workshops to address the stresses and mental health needs of parents, caregivers, and teachers. What stayed constant during the past year was the program’s long-standing mission of nurturing active citizens. Children learned the virtue of community service through participation in book, coat, and pajama drives. ANNUAL REPORT 2020



Greenwich House’s founder, Mary Kingsbury Simkhovitch, believed that the arts are a crucial part of living a fulfilling life, and arts became central to Greenwich House’s mission and services. Today, Greenwich House Music School and Greenwich House Pottery curate programs and offerings that support children and adults, hobbyists and professionals, and aspiring professionals looking for help and support on their creative journeys. In a year that hit the art world particularly hard, these services were a lifeline to many hoping to find refuge in the transformative power of art.


Employment in the arts dropped by 66% in New York City in 2020 18



Greenwich House provided over $60k in support for our artists-in-residence


WE’RE AT THE WHITNEY In early February, Greenwich House Pottery held a week-long residency at the Whitney Museum of American Art to complement the exhibition, Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950-2019. The Museum’s founder, Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney, was one of the first supporters of Greenwich House and championed the early arts programs, including classes that would develop into the Pottery as it stands today. This shared history made the Pottery

a natural fit as the Whitney’s community partner during the exhibition’s run. The Pottery residency included public workshops for visitors and private programs for students, teachers, seniors, and the Whitney’s staff. Pottery teaching artists also led a workshop and Verbal Description and Touch Tour of Making Knowing that provided an opportunity for visitors who are visually-impaired to engage with the exhibition.

Pottery Fellowship Artist Trevor King originally intended for his film project to explore how videography and ceramic arts could intersect, but as he began filming in November the project quickly took on deeper meaning. His work shifted to capturing how art brings people together, especially during a crisis. “I was expecting to portray Greenwich House as the heart of the ceramics world in New York City,” said King. “But I learned how much that has to do with the Pottery as a community. Even during this pandemic there’s such a resilient spirit here, to continue being here making things with other people.” King’s footage created a tender portrait of the Pottery, and a time capsule for this historic moment. “This time has made me think about just how precious institutions like Greenwich House are.”

Opportunities for Musicians The Uncharted concert series started

at Greenwich House Music School (GHMS) in 2015 to give a platform for emerging musicians. A residency component was introduced in 2018 to grant musicians free rehearsal space, access to recording equipment, and marketing assistance. The 2020 season of Uncharted was one of our first pandemic-related losses. However, GHMS wanted to continue to be a resource for musicians as their professional opportunities disappeared overnight. Thanks to the generosity of the Baisley Powell Elebash Fund, GHMS offered residencies to four musicians: Riley Mulherkar, Zawadi Noël, Linda Briceño, and Migguel Anggelo. They will return to perform live-streamed concerts during Uncharted’s 2021 season, showcasing new work they produced during their residencies. ANNUAL REPORT 2020
