Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Senior Center Moves to New Location OPEN TO ALL SENIORS ON FEBRUARY 2, 2011

Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services (CCNS) Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Senior Center is delighted to announce that the center moved to its new location on Wednesday, February 2, 2011.

Located at the Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Ambulance Corps building on 78-15 Jamaica Avenue, the Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Senior Center will operate Monday through Friday with a full schedule of activities, transportation services and lunch for all residents 60 years and older.

The Woodhaven seniors had been temporarily transported daily by Catholic Charities to the Richmond Hill Senior Center after the space they were in could no longer be used by the program.  Catholic Charities and the seniors in Woodhaven are grateful to their legislators for making this move possible, including Queens Borough President Helen Marshall, Assembly Member Mike Miller, Council Members Eric Ulrich and Elizabeth Crowley and Senator Joseph Addabbo. “Their support of the seniors of Woodhaven and Richmond Hill is outstanding.  The legislators pooled their resources and worked hard to ensure that seniors had a new home in Woodhaven,” said Debbie Hoffer, Director of Field Operations for the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services Older Adult Programs.

The official ribbon cutting ceremony for the New Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Senior Center will be held in March. In the mean time, beginning February 2, the doors will open to all seniors to enjoy lunch and the special welcome-back activities planned for them. Please call 718-847-9200 for further details.

The Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services Woodhaven-Richmond Hill Senior Center is funded by the NYC Department for the Aging.
