We Matched the Wayans Family Challenge!


We want to extend our gratitude to everyone who contributed to the Wayans Family $50K Match challenge. The $63,084 received surpassed our goal! The combined total of $113,084 will allow us to greatly enhance our K-8 Youth Services Program!

A Night to Remember


Our 65th annual Dr. Elliott Celebration, held on December 16th, was a great success. We could not have done it without you! From seeing our newly renovated space to honoring Meagan Diaz, Fred Street, and the Avenues Parent Association, thank you to everyone who joined us for a memorable night.

Celebrating the Fulton Community Center


Our elected officials, corporate partners, community leaders, and participants joined to celebrate the newly renovated Fulton Community Center at a ribbon-cutting ceremony on December 14th and a Holiday Community Party on December 18th.

Marlon Wayans stopped by at our Holiday Party to check out the new center and enjoy some quality time with the community with cookie decorating, ornament-making, & gift giving! A special thanks to the Wayans family for always looking out for us!

Spreading Holiday Cheer


Thanks to everyone who donated and volunteered, we were able to celebrate the holidays with a Holiday Pop-Up Shop on December 14-17 and Christmas Day Luncheon on December 25th! Hundreds of people from the community came to our Pop-Up and shopped for free items for themselves, their families, and their friends. A very special thank you to Pfizer, OXO, Roc Nation, Tapestry, Disney, Tommy Hilfiger, Avenues Parent Association, and all those who donated to our Toy Drive for making every Hudson Guild participant feel special.

At our Christmas Day Luncheon, community members gathered and enjoyed each other's company while sharing a Christmas meal together. Being able to help individuals and families spread holiday cheer to friends, family, and loved ones brings us limitless joy.

Thank you for helping us give!


Thanks to the generosity of partners such as the Wayans family, The Avenues Parent Association, Pfizer, IAC, and Disney, we were able to offer our Adopt A Family Program which fulfilled hundreds of holiday wishes of families in our community!

Hudson Guild Gallery presents its next upcoming exhibit, Return Works with oil and fabric by Danny Simmons! Danny Simmons first showed his vibrant, sensuous work here at Hudson Guild with his exhibit, African Inspiration, followed by two other exhibits since then. He returns this year with work that was recently shown to great acclaim at the Houston Museum of African American Culture and is said to "inject freshness" by The New York Times. His African-influenced abstract works were made to create beauty and hope during uncertain times.
