Continuing the Journey

West Harlem Group Assistance, Inc. (WHGA) is built upon harnessing the perseverance, pride, strength, and talents of Harlem residents. WHGA’s mission is to provide and increase the availability of safe and decent affordable housing and encourage, facilitate, and strengthen the economic viability and stability of the Harlem community.

On December 4, 2019, WHGA held its annual fundraiser at the Lenfest Center for the Arts at Columbia University School of the Arts. More than 100 people celebrated the nonprofit’s work on housing access and other social services.

WHGA has entered the 21st Century with a strategic, broad-based series of community development activities which, in effect, will launch Harlem’s second renaissance by benefitting, strengthening, and preserving all positive sectors of the world-renowned community of Harlem.
