  • A leader in inclusion (adults and youth/teen): The Bender JCC was founded on the belief that communities benefit when all people of all ability levels learn, grow, and celebrate together. Inclusion of those with disabilities has always been at the forefront of our mission and has made us an area leader in comprehensive special needs inclusion, from our programming to our facilities.

We offer memberships to meet everyone’s needs. View our Membership Categories.  As a Bender JCC member, you can visit many JCC’s across the country, and we welcome your guests as well. Please view our guest privileges. For information, click here or contact Membership at 301-348-3800.
