Who We Are

The Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Center is a not-for-profit organization serving Wyandanch and its surrounding communities. Our dedicated staff, volunteers, and donors believe that we must follow God’s call to meet the needs of others, one individual at a time. It is our challenge and commitment to live out the words of Bishop Gerald Ryan for whom our center is named.

“Concern for our brothers and sisters is at the heart of the Christian community.”

-Bishop Gerald J. Ryan

Community Programs

Food Pantry

The Gerald J. Ryan Outreach food pantry provides emergency food assistance to those in need in the Wyandanch area and neighboring communities. The pantry is one of the largest food pantries of its kind on Long Island—providing assistance to an average of 15,000 men, women and children annually.

Clothing Room

Clothing is essential to survival, but often too costly for the many families we serve. The clothing at the Outreach center is available to anyone in need, at no charge. Clothing and many other household items are made possible through a variety of donations, which include clothing, shoes and many other items.
