The Goodhue Center has served children, youth, and families on Staten Island since 1912. One of the largest greenspaces on Staten Island’s North Shore, Goodhue offers woodlands, ball fields, a gymnasium, and a computer room. Thousands have learned to swim in the center’s outdoor pool. Kids come from miles away to attend the Goodhue Summer Camp, where they have cookouts in the woods, tend to a garden, and keep their minds engaged and bodies healthy.
Children’s Aid, who runs the community center believes that “Poverty cannot be overcome with one service or program at a single point in time. That’s why we commit to supporting children, youth, and families every step of the way. For more than 160 years, with your support, Children’s Aid has been able to help families change their lives by adapting to the ever evolving nature of poverty and constantly seeking improvement. We are on a mission to connect young people and their families with the tools they need to learn, grow, and become leaders of their own lives.”
