The mission of Jacob A. Riis Neighborhood Settlement is to build and strengthen underserved communities in western Queens and to act as a catalyst for change. We are a community-based non-profit organization that offers integrated, comprehensive services to the low- and moderate-income youth, families, immigrants and seniors in Long Island City, Astoria and beyond. Our goal is to help community members reach their greatest potential and achieve social and economic self-sufficiency.
We have joined forces with the Queens Chamber of Commerce to bring Generosity to the World's borough: Queens! Join us in the famed Flushing Meadow- Corona Park as we generate generosity in the nation's most diverse borough.
