As a multi-service settlement house founded in 1895 and focused on the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, Hudson Guild's mission is to create and sustain a strong, effective community that acknowledges and responds to the potential, achievements and interdependence of its diverse members. We seek to empower all individuals and families to achieve their highest potential, while maintaining a priority focus on those in economic need.

Each year, more than 14,000 people participate in at least one Hudson Guild program, with offerings in Children and Youth Services, Adult Services, Community Building, Mental Health Services and the Arts. Our participants are as diverse as our community, coming from varied cultural, ethnic and socio-economic backgrounds. Approximately 90% of our participants are low- to moderate-income.
