Abby Klein
Family Connector

I live in Needham with my husband and 5 year old son Carson. We love spending time outside together - at the beach in the summer and on the ski mountain in the winter. I first knew that I wanted to be more involved in the JCC Newton community and work with their Family Engagement team after experiencing the free PJ Library weekly playgroups. My son and I loved dropping in each week, and it helped open the door to so many other wonderful JCC programs. We started swim lessons not long after joining playgroup, which then rolled into becoming a member, going to school at the Godine Early Learning Center, taking enrichment classes, joining the Outdoor Pool and heading to Grossman Camp for the summer. The JCC has given us such a sense of community, and I enjoy sharing my family's experience with others now that I am in the role of Newton Family Connector. Contact Abby
