Do you know someone with a developmental or intellectual disability, autism, or down syndrome? We provide a fun and caring environment and structured opportunities for learning, growth, and socializing with peers.Children and adults with special needs require a special kind of care. We offer free programs that provide such care while giving respite to working parents living in the Bronx.
Our Special Needs After School Program offers young people age 5-21:
- Homework Help
- Adaptive Physical Education
- Arts and Crafts
- Computer Literacy
- Snack and dinner are included!
Our Saturday Program and Sunday Program serve young people up to age 25; services for adults above that age can also be arranged. We invite participants on recreational trips to community venues, allowing them to engage with the world outside the Center. Some examples of recent destinations include:
- The Studio Museum of Harlem
- The Bronx Zoo
- The New Jersey Naval Museum
- Randall’s Island Fall Festival
- Apple Picking and Hay Ride at Dr. Davies Farm
Special Needs Program is looking for dedicated volunteers! Join us!
