Support Abrons Art Center and Henry Street Settlement

Our longtime home and partner, the Abrons Arts Center is currently closed but is still holding virtual classes and supporting local artists affected through direct financial support with an Artist Community Relief Fund. For more information and to contribute, visit

Henry Street Settlement (the parent org of Abrons) COVID-19 response team needs volunteers – Adults 18+ looking to volunteer from home or in the neighborhood. Programs include:

  1. emergency food distribution and
  2. senior check-in calls (multilingual a plus – especially Spanish and Chinese).

See details on Henry Street’s volunteer webpage where individuals can sign-up to volunteer and learn about the different ways Henry Street is responding to the current emergency.
