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 programs and services including social, cultural, educational, and recreational. Aisling Irish Center is one of the largest Irish immigrant resource centers in thetri-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.

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

July 2015 - We are very happy to announce we have been awarded a grant from Westchester Community Foundation, a division of The New York Community Trust, to support our counseling services and overall mental health program. This vital funding will now enable us to have a full-time Licensed Clinical Social Worker on staff here at Aisling Irish Community Center. Our counseling services are FREE, so please contact Rosemary, our Social Worker, at 914-237-5121 if you are finding it difficult to cope and need help.
