Who We Are

Woodside on the Move is a grassroots community organization dedicated to making Woodside and Western Queens a better place to live and learn. Our services include one-on-one help with affordable housing, pro bono legal clinics, after school and summer camp, adult ESL and computer classes, and public events including street fairs and art festivals. Our monthly tenant meetings and rallies are gathering spaces where immigrants, seniors, and other residents can bring their questions, concerns, and voices to the table as well as acting on citywide campaigns for rent stabilization and right to counsel. Our neighborhood thrives when all of our neighbors participate and have a voice at the table. We welcome your ideas and participation. Together we will strive to keep Woodside and Western Queens moving forward.
