13th Annual Benefit


Thanks to all who were able to attend this year’s event. We honored Priscilla Sims Brown, President & Chief Executive Officer of Amalgamated bank, for the bank’s longtime support, heard an incredible and inspiring spoken word piece written by Ari Newman, 15-year-old Hudson Guild participant, and raised critical funds to support our programs. Watch our 13th Annual Benefit video above!

Related Volunteer Event


In April, over 100 volunteers from Related Companies’ New York development and construction teams spent some fun and meaningful time at our Elliott, Children’s, & Fulton Community centers!

At the Fulton Community Center, several teams spent the afternoon with older adult participants, playing rounds of bingo and serving lunch. At the Children’s Center, volunteers engaged in reading and arts activities with pre-k classrooms. At the Elliott Center, volunteers had fun in the Elliott Gym with sports, face-painting, and bracelet-making while also working on beautifying the center’s main entrance and patio area.

Thank you to everyone who helped make a difference!

Celebrating Early Learning


Week of the Young Child is an annual week-long celebration of early learning, young children, their teachers, families, and communities.

This year we celebrated at each of our early childhood education centers with dress-up days, dance parties, slime-making, magic tricks, movies, and a trip to The Edge, thanks to Related!

Employment Readiness Workshop with IAC


Last month, our Employment Support Specialist held a workshop which focused on resume building and preparing for future workforce opportunities. Professionals from IAC and members of our Junior Board assisted in one-on-one sessions with participants to complete impressive resumes!
