Lenox Hill Neighborhood House

Lenox Hill Neighborhood House, widely recognized as one of New York’s premier nonprofit organizations, is a 100-plus year old organization providing 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.

With a  budget of over $13M/year, LHNH has dozens of different programs, more than 150 staff members and over 600 regular volunteers who work throughout their nine departments: Adult EducationChildren & Family ServicesFitness & Aquatics CenterFood ServicesHomeless & Housing ServicesLegal Advocacy & OrganizingOlder Adult ServicesTransportation Services and Visual & Performing Arts.

LHNH has been educating preschool children since their founding in 1894; they created New York’s first tenants’ rights group and first “Meals on Wheels” program; they have been instrumental in helping to improve the City’s homelessness crisis since the early 1980s; and their use of integrated civil legal services to help solve diverse human services problems is unique.

Board meets four times a year at LHNH on east 70th Street.  Financial commitment is significant.  Current board, which is listed on website, is a very high profile mix of philanthropists and New York business leaders and lawyers, among others.
