Empowering Children and Families
Nepperhan Community Center provides a safe nurturing environment where children of all ages are equipped with necessary life skills. Their educational, social, spiritual, and emotional needs are addressed through interactive events, such as academic enrichment, sports, cultural arts, and workshops focusing on boosting self-esteem, confidence conflict resolution, and team building, while they learn to value and appreciate cultural diversity.
At NCC, we believe our children can fly!
Nepperhan Community Center (NCC) was founded by a group of concerned neighbors in the Nepperhan section of Yonkers (now Runyon Heights) in the late 1930’s. This group wanted a meeting place that could also accommodate recreational activities and classes for the youth. They identified a community room at 13 Monroe Street as the original location. Some of the early Directors included Rosa Kittrell, and Doris Moore as acting Director, until Juanita Temple was officially named Director. Nepperhan Community Center also became home to a Drum and Bugle Corps, which during those years was led by George Perenchief.
NCC provides extensive programs and services to Yonkers and the Lower Hudson Valley in New York, South New Jersey and two locations overseas. We address many social ills as well as work tirelessly to empower and our children and families to live their best lives in a safe and healthy manner.
