Children + Families

At the JCC, we nurture families by cultivating experiences where children can thrive, parents can connect, and families can grow together. When you join us for prenatal programs, a swim in our pool with your baby, a music class with your toddler, a cooking class with your school-aged child, or community service with your teen, you will feel right at home. At The Bert and Sandra Wasserman Center for Family Life, we are here for your family at every age and at every stage.

Caring Calls Volunteering

Make a call, make a day. This initiative is a partnership between the JCC Manhattan's Wasserman Center for Children + Families and the Wechsler Center for Modern Aging. Through the JCC's Caring Calls, families and other volunteers have reached out to thousands of older adults in our community to combat the persistent epidemic of loneliness. Join other families in signing up for this worthwhile program! To learn more or to sign up, email Sherri Lerner at
