GMHC is moving forward. On April 15, we move to a new and expanded home — 165,000 square feet of redesigned and renovated space at 446 West 33rd Street. Throughout the weekend over 30 truckloads of GMHC belongings will be carried by union movers to our new home. April 18, the unpacking begins. We are filled with tremendous excitement!

Tuesday, April 19, GMHC opens its doors to welcome clients to a hot nutritious lunch, prepared in a state-of-the-art kitchen, and served in a larger, airy dining room. We will expand our work of serving those affected by HIV/AIDS. Our new location will enable us to extend the best services possible to the 11,000 New Yorkers who rely on GMHC for access to health information, education, support, legal and social services, meals and nutrition counseling. For many people we serve, GMHC is a home away from home. The offices, meeting rooms, kitchen and dining room are spread out generously over two floors filled with natural light.

Every step of the way in this new endeavor, GMHC has proudly worked with contractors, construction workers, carpenters, planners, electricians, movers, truck drivers and others — all union members. In a time when unions are under attack, GMHC stands strong with union members and steadfastly upholds the rights of workers to organize, and the rights of unions to protect their members. On April 29, at 9:00 am, GMHC will mark the official opening of our new and expanded headquarters with a ribbon cutting. City officials, leadership of community-based organizations, clergy, donors and friends will be there to celebrate our new home.
