Because of the Action Center and the help that comes from our partners, 3000 meals a week do not spill in the streets, but go to fill hungry, empty bellies…Many those of our Seniors and our Children.
Without the Action Center our Residents face one impossible choice after another – Seniors are forced to choose between buying food or buying medicine; parents are forced to go hungry so their children don’t, and working families are forced to choose between paying their utilities or putting food on the table.
Without the Action Center some of the neediest. families in this 3rd world community of Far Rockaway have no access to simple, but critical, things like books, preschool, healthy foods and places to play and exercise…things that help children thrive and grow in mind and body.
Without the Action Center for many it can mean being unable to see a future outside of poverty.
