Mission

The Isaacs Center is a multi-site social service agency founded in 1964 in the settlement house tradition. Our mission is to promote social and physical well-being, and encourage growth and self-reliance throughout every stage of life. We reach across generations and cultures in our work with the poor, the isolated and the disconnected of all ages, genders, backgrounds and abilities. Each year we directly assist more than 6,000 inner-city children, young people, adults, families, seniors and the frail, homebound elderly. Our primary service area, which includes East Harlem, is predominately low-income.

Seniors

Today, we are developing an ambitious set of programs focused on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM) learning that are grade-level appropriate, aligned with Common Core standards, and incorporate literacy, civics, and fitness. With the support of key community partners, this new model out-of-school time programs at the Isaacs Center will prepare the children we serve with the skills, experiences, and resources they will need to gain entry into high performing New York City high schools.

Children and youth

Our programs for out-of-school and out-of-work youth provide pathways to a positive and productive adulthood for more than 175 at risk young people each year. Many come to the Isaacs Center looking for a second (or even third) chance at success and more than 85% of our enrollees complete our education and career readiness training. We want the young adults we serve to find meaningful employment, to earn a college degree, and to prepare for a career in the 21st century.
