Who We Are

The Eleanor Roosevelt Center at Val-Kill (ERVK) inspires and empowers individuals and organizations to use their time, talent and resources to build a just and sustainable world, close to home and abroad. We accomplish this mission by providing cutting edge programs and experiences epitomizing Eleanor Roosevelt’s passion and commitment to human rights, principled leadership and social justice for all.

ERVK was founded in 1977 to preserve Eleanor Roosevelt’s home in Hyde Park, New York and to provide programs inspired by her values and example. Today, the Eleanor Roosevelt National Historic Site is maintained by the US National Park Service (NPS) and ERVK is an independent not-for-profit organization. ERVK and the NPS have a unique partnership and collaborate on special projects.
