THE JACOB A. RIISE NEIGHBORHOOD SETTLEMENT HOUSE
The mission of Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement House is to build and strengthen underserved communities in Western Queens and to act as a catalyst for change
Riis Academy is the largest youth services provider in western Queens, serving over 1,000 youths in grades K-12 at five campuses including two community centers and three public schools. We believe every child can achieve his/her goals when given the opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive environment.
The Queensbridge/Riis Senior Center offers health, nutrition and social services to seniors 60 and older. We work hard to ensure that seniors are able to maintain healthy and independent lives throughout our community.
Our Immigrant Services program offers free ESOL classes, case management and legal services to support immigrants on their journey towards self-sufficiency in the United States. We value the contributions of immigrants and celebrate the diversity they bring to our communities.
