The mission of the Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center is to meet the social, educational, recreational and cultural needs of the greater Lincoln Square neighborhood.

Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.
— Steve Jobs

The Mabel Barrett Fitzgerald Early Childhood Center offers full-day program for children aged between two and five years old, providing high-quality, affordable childcare to parents and caregivers who need it most. Our team of teachers works tirelessly to nurture the socio-emotional, cognitive and physical needs of every child in preparation for kindergarten. Children play, socialize and learn to be healthy, with access to ballet and soccer classes.



The Lincoln Square/ West 65th Street Senior Center provides comprehensive services for older adults ages 60 and above by addressing social, physical and mental health needs, and coping with challenges of everyday living. A wide range of activities including congregate meals; recreational arts; movement and exercise; health promotions; case assistance; special events; trips and more, engage and empower members with the support and resources they need to remain in their homes, living as independently for as long as possible.


We are committed to providing a safe, nurturing environment for children aged 5-13, where they can benefit from academic support, cultural enrichment, and social and recreational programming. Our After school, Summer Camp, and new Middle School Pilot Programs, offer disadvantaged youth not only first-rate academic tutoring, but also access to spectacular performances and classes from world-renowned artists through our partnership with Lincoln Center.
