Lenox Hill Neighborhood House , widely recognized as one of  New York's premier human services providers, is a 125-year-old settlement house that provides an extensive array of effective and integrated services which significantly improve the lives of 15,000 people in need each year on the East Side of Manhattan. Our Women's Mental Health Shelter at the Park Avenue Armory on East 67th Street provides a temporary home to 80 homeless women age 45 and over who are living with mental illness.

Volunteers should have experience teaching adult basic literacy and must be comfortable working with a psychiatrically and medically vulnerable population.
