GMHC Move FAQ

 

1. Why is GMHC moving?

 

GMHC’s services and programs grew significantly in 2017, including opening dedicated mental health and substance use clinics and expanding our housing program. We will experience more growth in 2018, and this new space will accommodate that growth.

Our new location will also enable us to make the most of our new strategic partnership with ACRIA, which we announced in October 2017. ACRIA’s expertise in education and research will merge very effectively with GMHC’s mission, in part thanks to the strategic layout of our new space.
 


2. Where exactly is GMHC's new location?

 

GMHC’s new headquarters is centrally located in Midtown Manhattan at 307 West 38th Street, between 8th and 9th Avenues. GMHC will occupy 90,000 square feet and six floors of the building (floors 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8).
 


3. How accessible is GMHC's new location to clients, visitors, and supporters?

 

We have prioritized accessibility in our selection. Our new office is centrally located and is just steps away from Times Square’s A, C, E, N, Q, R, W, 1, 2, 3, and 7 subway stations, the Port Authority, and Penn Station.
 


4. When is GMHC moving, and what will happen to that office space?

 

We plan to move by the end of July 2018. GMHC’s current headquarters at 446 West 33rd Street will revert back to our building’s landlord, Brookfield.

GMHC’s David Geffen Center for HIV Prevention and Health Education, whose staff administered more than 4,300 HIV tests in 2016, will remain in its existing location, 224 West 29th Street.
 


5. What are some features of GMHC's new space?

 

As in the current headquarters, there will be a dedicated entry for GMHC staff, clients, guests, supporters, and other visitors. The Peter Krueger Dining Room will have the same schedule and complete menus as in our present building--serving clients hot lunches Monday through Thursday, and hot dinners on Friday evenings. The Keith Haring Food Pantry Program will distribute nutritious food packages.
 


6. How will GMHC share the moving process and timeline with clients, staff, volunteers, donors, and supporters?

 

We will continue to share information about the moving process and our new headquarters through internal meetings, flyers, community meetings and receptions, emails, and updates on our social media channels and website.
 


7. How much will this move cost? Are you raising money specifically for it?

 

We have carefully planned our 2018 budget for this move, whose costs will be covered by our existing operating budget as well as dedicated donations.
 


8. This is a 30-year lease. 

 

This will be the fifth move in GMHC's history. We have no future plans to move again at this time.
