Join us for a Lively Evening of Cocktails, Light Bites, and Celebration!
We’re honoring 60 years of the Isaacs Center’s remarkable work on Wednesday, May 8th at 6:00 PM in midtown.
A Culinary Arts Grad Rises to the Top
Jezebel Gomez completed our tuition-free Culinary Arts training two years ago. After a year at buzzy Hawksmoor in the Flatiron District, she’s moving to FiveTwentyFour, the new fine-dining destination on Park Avenue!
The Stanley M. Isaacs Neighborhood Center is a non-profit, multi-service organization located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan focused on the needs of children and low-income families, out-of-school and out-of-work youth, and aging New Yorkers, including our isolated and homebound elderly neighbors.
Food and Nutrition
We are dedicated to addressing food insecurity for homebound seniors and other vulnerable neighbors. We provide food and pantry items to those in need, including thousands of nutritious meals prepared in our onsite kitchen each week.
- Meals on Wheels
- Soup’s Up
- Emergency food pantry
- Congregate meals
Older Adult Services
We serve more than 2,000 older adults, including residents of Isaacs/Holmes and Taft/Johnson public housing and of the local Naturally Occurring Retirement Community (NORC). Through our Meals on Wheels and congregate meals, educational and recreational activities, case management, and health and wellness management, we help our older neighbors, including those who are homebound, to age in place with dignity.
