Hudson Guild offers diverse programming to individuals and families in all life cycles who work, live, or go to school in the Chelsea neighborhood. Our programming helps support, enrich, and empower our community members.
Hudson Guild’s Adult Services program helps older adults age “55 & better” live in independence and with dignity as contributing members of the community. The Guild keeps adults healthy, active and engaged through a range of educational, recreational and health-related activities. All are welcome at Adult Services programs, and our staff speaks many languages including Spanish, Cantonese and Mandarin in addition to English.
Hudson Guild provides year-round opportunities for everyone in our community to experience art created by professionals and to create art on their own. Hudson Guild has built a reputation for its diverse and successful arts programs through performances at our theatre and exhibits in our two galleries.
Since our founding in 1895, Hudson Guild has served a primary role in making the Chelsea neighborhood a place where people come together to help others and themselves through education, skills-building, and joint action. Our Community Building Program provides a forum for this development.
Hudson Guild provides high quality care to 2, 3, and 4 year-old children year round. We offer Head Start, Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) and NYC Early Learn child care. Our nurturing environment fosters independence for kids, promoting the development of school readiness and social-emotional skills. Skilled teachers, bright classrooms and healthy meals are all part of the child’s experience, as we encourage them towards life-long learning.
Mental Health Services provides a broad array of mental health prevention and intervention services, in our own facilities and out in the community. Our therapists work with children, adults and families, individually and in groups, in our offices, in schools and in residential buildings.
Young people, ages 5-24, come to Hudson Guild for academic achievement, life skills development, college and career training, employment experience, recreation and social/emotional support. Through free afterschool, summer camp, college preparation and workforce development programs, the Guild’s youth participate in the arts, socialize in structured peer groups, engage in sports and physical activity, attend field trips to sites beyond the neighborhood and rely on a strong staff support network.
