ABOUT THE MONTSERRAT PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY OF NEW YORK, INC.
The Montserrat Progressive Society of New York, Inc. was formed on September 25, 1914 (into its Centennial Year, September 2014) by a group of Montserratians who understood the importance of community. They eventually acquired a building at 207 West 137 Street, known today as the Montserrat Building in Harlem. This became a meeting place where they kept abreast of events at home and abroad. The mission of the Society was then and is still today to conduct activities which are charitable, scientific and educational and also to provide relief to the distressed and underprivileged, thus lessening the burdens of government for the promotion of public good. The Society also aims to unite people who are from, and interested in, the island of Montserrat. The volcano that has ravaged Montserrat for the past 17 years [July 18, 1995] and which is still active propels the need to sustain the mission of the Society.

The Society also provides scholarship awards to deserving individuals; get the community actively involved in the welfare of their neighborhoods and assist in uplifting them socially, morally, culturally and intellectually; and to promote their general welfare.
