Special Needs Program

Price: Free

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:

  • Reading Buddies
  • Helping Hands
  • Best Buddies
  • Homework Help and Tutoring
  • Adaptive Physical Education
  • Games
  • Arts and Crafts
  • Gardening and nutrition
  • Computer Literacy
  • Snack and dinner are included!

Our Saturday Program and Sunday Program serves teens and adults. We invite participants on recreational trips to community venues, allowing them to engage with the world outside the Center.

Special Needs Program is looking for dedicated volunteers! Join us!
