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. 

The Y has welcomed Nursery School and NYC DYCD Learning Lab students to the Y. The Fitness Center is now open, too! 

We are continuing our robust virtual program -- The Y @ Home -- with many fun and meaningful online events.

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

Emergency food assistance is available through New York City’s Get Food NYC program. Contact them at nyc.gov/getfood or call 311.
