Volunteers of America-Greater New York Moves Its Administrative Offices


Relocation Will Centralize Key Functions of Nonprofit That Provides Social Services to Local Individuals and Families in Need

(Thursday, February 1, 2018 – New York, NY) – The administrative offices of Volunteers of America-Greater New York (VOA-GNY) are moving from the Upper West Side to its new midtown Manhattan location at 135 West 50th Street following the sale of its previous headquarters.

Approximately 120 employees from the Executive Office along with Senior Leadership responsible for overseeing the organization’s programs are relocating to the 32,000-square-foot contemporary office space. This strategic move will centralize key VOA-GNY functions into one Administrative Office with an open floor plan, providing opportunities for enhanced collaboration and efficiencies while addressing its need for more space.

Tere Pettitt, President and CEO of VOA-GNY, said, “Relocating our administrative offices to this new space presents exciting new opportunities. By re-investing funds from the sale of our previous headquarters into the critical services and programs that fulfill our mission, we are better equipped to continue providing the community with supportive housing, transitional housing for the homeless and those escaping domestic violence, schools for children with special needs, a continuum of care for veterans, and more.”

The new offices were designed by The Switzer Group in collaboration with members of VOA-GNY’s staff. Nucor Construction was the general contractor for the leasehold renovations under the project management services provided by Jones Lang LaSalle. Additional professionals from other firms involved in the design and development of the new offices included CFS Engineering, Linear Technologies, Benhar Office Interiors, Spectra Audio Design Group, and Air Space Graphic Design Consultants, among others.
