Meltzer Center

The Max Meltzer Senior Center - added to University Settlement's family of sites in the summer of 2015 - joins the Neighborhood Center and the Houston Street Center's HEART Program as a trifecta of older adults programming in Manhattan that sees more than 2,600 participants a year.

Meltzer embodies our LEARN model: Longevity through Education, Art, Recreation and Nutrition. We believe that older adults deserve to live empowered, vibrant lives, far beyond having their basic needs met.

Located at 94 East 1st Street (between 1st Avenue and Avenue A), Meltzer serves older adults aged 60 and above, and is open Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. 

In addition to providing nutritious breakfast and lunch, any older adult who comes to Meltzer has access to the following activities and programs, free of charge:

  • Fitness classes and health screenings, including a walking club and zumba
  • Computer classes and continuing education opportunities
  • Creative arts, including dancing and crafting
  • Recreational activities, including movies, parties, and group trips

All Meltzer participants will also have access to the many social services University Settlement as a whole provides, including adult literacy classes, eviction prevention, and more - free of charge.

Services are available in English, Mandarin, and Cantonese. Services will be added in Spanish soon.  提供華語服務(國語和粵語).  Servicios estarán disponibles en español pronto.
