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

Gerald J. Ryan Outreach Annual Golf Outing at Indian Hills Country Club

MONDAY, MAY 20, 2024

What better way to have a fun and relaxing day with like-minded people while contributing to a very worthy cause? Please come join us for a great day of golf, relax at the cocktail hour, listen to soft music, and have a nice dinner with your friends. We are looking for sponsors to help make this event a success while helping children that are less fortunate than yours.   A “Friends of GROC Hole Sponsor” funds a child for summer camp this summer. The venue has changed this year to the Indian Hills Country Club, which is an impeccable and challenging golf course, overlooking the Long Island Sound.

So save the date and mark your calendars for: Monday, May 20, 2024.

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.

The campers take part in camp activities for five weeks during late June and July, Monday to Friday from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
