Your child’s at home from school with nothing to do, and nowhere to go. As a parent you worry that they may get into harm’s way or, at the very least idle their time away – thus their future is diminished!

Imagine a community center where the safety of our kids is assured, and where learning, recreation, and exploring is encouraged. Imagine John J. Byrne Community Center | UNIONDALE.

The youth of Uniondale have far too often been subjected to gang violence and recruitment into gangs, drug addiction, teen pregnancies, bullying and other influences due to a lack of supervised places where they have opportunities to peacefully build social skills, recreate and foster promise for the future. Community members feel this can be successfully mitigated in a community center atmosphere. To confront the problem residents of Uniondale feel a full service community center is vital.

You can make a real and lasting difference in the lives of our children and youth. They will reap significant benefits from having in their community Intergenerational, Multicultural, Fullservice community center!
