Lenox Hill Neighborhood House

Manhattan

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, widely recognized as one of New York’s premier nonprofit organizations, is a 117-year-old settlement house that provides an extensive array of effective and integrated human services—social, educational, legal, health, housing, mental health, nutritional and fitness—which significantly improve the lives of 20,000 people in need each year, ages 3 to 103, on the East Side of Manhattan.

Emergency Preparedness



Preparing in advance is the only way to be ready in case of an emergency or natural disaster. As New York City saw with Hurricane Sandy, neighborhoods rely on their community organizations and settlement houses, especially in the event of emergency. The resources here, created and gathered through a partnership between United Neighborhood Houses and Citi Foundation, can help organizations prepare so they can serve their community year round, no matter what the year brings.
