Welcome to the website for Aisling Irish Community Center

Established in 1996, the Aisling Center's main principle is to assist Irish immigrants in their transition to life in the USA. We do this by offering a number of services including legal, social, psychological and educational. The Aisling Center is one of the largest Irish immigrant resource centers in the tri-state area and the main provider of services for the elderly Irish and Irish-American community in Yonkers and Woodlawn. Please visit our services page to see all that we have to offer

Counseling and Emotional Wellbeing

Life has its many challenges whether you've recently emigrated from Ireland or have been here long term. If you (or anyone you know) are feeling depressed, isolated or anxious, please let us try to help.

Our trained staff is on hand to deal with daily “walk-ins” in need of social service referral, information and assistance i.e. depression and suicide awareness, anxiety and panic, alcohol and drug issues, domestic violence, rape and/or sexual assault, homelessness, financial problems, relationship issues, grief and bereavement, family pressures, pregnancy and health insurance.

Rosemary Vassallo recently joined the team at Aisling Irish Community Center as a full-time Registered Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She has many years experience as a Mental Health Professional with extensive clinical, administrative and supervisory responsibilities. Rosemary has experience working as an individual, family and group counselor and is really looking forward to working with Irish emigrants and the local community here in Yonkers .

Our Social Worker is available Monday – Friday for walk-in clients as well as by appointment. She is available to take appointments or see people on an as-needed basis up to 8:00pm two nights a week.

Confidentiality is of the utmost importance therefore anyone who avails themselves of this service should feel free to come in for counseling knowing that a foundation of privacy, trust and respect for all individuals is exhibited at all times here at the Aisling Irish Community Center .

We also have experienced psychotherapists and counselors available for evening and weekend appointments, both here at the center or at another location if preferred.

Please feel free to call the Aisling Center at 914-237-5121 or 914-237-7121 or to e-mail our Social Worker at rosemary@aislingcenter.org . We also have a new e-mail counseling@aislingcenter.org for confidential questions about our counseling services and emotional wellbeing in general.
