Neighbors Link Locations: Yonkers

Yonkers is a diverse city. Currently, over 30% of the population in Yonkers is foreign born. Within Yonkers’ immigrant population, the largest group (more than 50%) comes from Latin America. This diversity leads to a culturally rich community. At the same time, a significant portion of the immigrant population faces challenges such as low income, employer abuses and concerns about legal status. This creates a need for programming that is proactive and effective to respond in ways that are impactful, relevant and cost effective.

Neighbors Link has been offering Parent-Child Together (PCT) classes at Dayspring Community Center in Yonkers since 2017. PCT is designed for parents with children from birth to age 4. The program focuses on positive parenting skills, early childhood development, school readiness and empowering parents to embrace their role as their children’s first teachers. In 2018, we began offering English as a Second Language programs in Yonkers. Our programs were paused while Dayspring Community Center was under construction but will be reopening soon. Stay tuned for more details!

In 2017, Neighbors Link was invited to join Westhab in launching Dayspring Community Center programs in Nodine Hill. We worked with a dedicated group of volunteers to refurbish the space and prepare it for programming.
