GOLES is a neighborhood housing and preservation organization that has served the Lower East Side of Manhattan since 1977.
Through our direct services, we serve over 2,000 families each year, and thousands more through our organizing and training and education work.
We work locally, city-wide, and nationally with our allies to build solidarity and collective power to fight against the issues that oppress us and to create the world we want to see.
We believe in social justice.
We are the heart and soul of the Lower East Side.
We are GOLES!
