Serving the town of Millerton, NY, the poorest town in Dutchess County, and surrounding areas, NECC offers programs for all. Mom's Morning Out and Growing Together helps parents of babies and toddlers learn healthy parenting skills and get much needed support. Our after-school program for middle-school students offers arts, homework help, yoga, sports and more. The Partnership with Schools and Business offers internships and on-the-job training for teenagers. Seniors participate in the volunteer-run Care Car takes people to the doctor or other appointments and an exercise program. Other programs range from food assistance to the Family Arts Festival, a multicultural all-day, free event, and the Millerton Farmer's Market, which supports local farms and brings fresh locally grown produce into the community.
