WELCOME to NYACK CENTER
Nyack Center was founded 25 years ago in 1990 by a group of concerned citizens and is housed in a renovated historic church in the heart of Nyack, NY. Nyack Center serves the Nyacks and the larger community of Rockland County by supporting children, youth and families through educational and recreational programs. This non-profit organization provides a welcoming gathering space for vital before-and-after school programs, cultural celebrations, and community events. Nyack Center more than just a community building; a place for building community.

Imagine how children who can't afford school supplies feel on the first day school. Every year with help from People to People, Nyack Rotary and many others, Nyack Center distributes back packs with school supplies to children in our community. Last year we gave out over 180 backpacks! This year, Good Samaritan Hospital has generously donated 150 backpacks! Please help us do it again this year and donate supplies or make a donation online .We are accepting pencils, spiral notebooks, markers, blue and black pens, gluesticks, index cards, 3 ring binders, pocket folders, pink erasers, pencil sharpeners, rulers red pens, posit notes, colored pencils, calculators and composition notebooks.
Lets make sure every child has what they need to begin a successful school year!

Last year, with your help we gave out 85 scholarships to children in need.
SUMMER is the time of barbecues and swimming pools, family vacations and fun.
To quote the Gershwin’s, it’s the time “when the livin’ is easy.”
But that’s not the case for everyone.
For low-income working families, summer is the time when parents worry even more how to feed their children because federally funded breakfasts and lunches at school end with the school year. It’s the time when parents have to figure out what to do with their children all day so that they can stay at work. And it’s the time when the children themselves can have too little supervision and too few worthwhile activities that nurture their bodies, their brains and their spirits. For low-income families in our community, summer living is far from easy.
The Nyack Center helps change that. First, we serve as a Summer Food Service Program Site (SFSP) for breakfast and lunch, ensuring that low-income children continue to receive nutritious meals until school resumes in the fall. In addition, we run Camp Nyack, offering children a safe, fun and educational place to be while their parents are at work. And we extend Computer Time evening program to day hours to local youth, giving them supervised access to the Computer and Internet.
For these terrific summer programs, our children need your help.
And now is a great time to give because thanks to generous donors, Jennifer Smith and Erik Simon have offered a $2,500 match for the 2015 Summer Appeal. Your gift will
go twice as far. Please donate to the Nyack Center for a great start to our 25th year of service.
