Founded 1897
New York, United States


The Penington Friends House was established by Quaker women and early Abolitionists to offer a home like place of shelter in New York City to a wide range of people. Today, we are a collaborative house open to all that is run on Quaker process and on the Quaker values of simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and stewardship. We offer 23 long term residencies and 2 short stay guest rooms. The heart of our community are the chef prepared meals we serve to all residents and guests. We also strive to serve our community through offering our parlor as a meeting space and through programing that includes the year long Bayard Rustin residency for BIPOC artists and activists.
