Project Find

Coffeehouse Senior Center
Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Holy Cross, McCaffrey Hall

Project FIND provides seniors with the services and supports they need to live enriched, independent lives on Manhattan's West Side. 

Project FIND runs the Coffeehouse Senior Center at Holy Cross. The coffeehouse program has been serving the Hell’s Kitchen/Chelsea neighborhood since the early 1970s, starting as a help desk in the Port Authority Bus Terminal where the elderly “sitters” congregated, growing over time to become a full service senior center with funding from the NYC Department for the Aging.

For 30 years, the coffeehouse as operated in a building near Times Square, at 551 Ninth Avenue, owned by the Port Authority. In 2012, the coffeehouse moved into McCaffrey Hall, the undercroft of Holy Cross Church. McCaffrey Hall is a fully handicapped-accessible center with a commercial grade kitchen.

The coffeehouse provides breakfast and lunch five days week, in addition to an expanding number of health and wellness activities. The center also provides a Thursday evening meal program and a take-away meal program for individuals who are either homeless, indigent, or whose living quarters do not contain cooking facilities.
