Our Community Center

Established in 1917 as one of the first Jewish community centers in New York City, the YM&YWHA of Washington Heights & Inwood (the Y) is a thriving and visionary not-for-profit human services organization in Northern Manhattan. We welcome people of diverse ethnicities and all ages, from pre-school to older adults, into the Y family with a wide range of educational, recreational, and social services and programs that focus on improving the quality of their lives. With a long and distinguished history, the Y is a multi-service community center that is well known for its nurturing environment and non-judgmental philosophy. 

For the health and safety of our community, all of the Y's onsite programs are temporarily suspended. 

We launched a robust virtual program -- The Y @ Home -- with many fun and meaningful online events during this time when we're unable to see each other in person.

The Y is here for you. If you find yourself in need of access to food, mental health counseling, emergency cash assistance, guidance with benefit enrollment, medical care, or other emergency services at this time, click here to request assistance.

We continue to manage and provide essential services at Wein House -- a residence for low income seniors and physically disabled adults.

For seniors ages 60 years and older who have disabilities or access or functional needs, NYC Department for the Aging (DFTA) provides home-delivered meals. Call 311.

For others in need of emergency food assistance, call the Emergency Food Hotline at 866-888-8777 or 311.
