The mission of the Nyack Center is to create connections across social, cultural and economic boundaries and to improve the life of all that live in the Nyack community. Nyack Center serves the Nyacks and the larger community of Rockland County, over 2000 people each year, by providing programs, facilities, and opportunities for service. We offer programs that nurture children, teens and families, and provide space for others with similar goals. Nyack Center is more than a community building; they are a place for building community.
