A Hub of Activity: Programs, Events, and Community Engagement at the John J. Byrne Community Center

These events attracted attention from prominent political figures including Governor George Pataki, County Executive Thomas Gulotta, and Congresswoman Carolyn McCarthy.

Doubling Our Footprint: Expansion and Program Growth at the Uniondale Neighborhood Center

In 2007, a New York State grant enabled the Uniondale Neighborhood Center to expand, enhancing programs and adding providers: Uniondale/Roosevelt Weed and Seed Volunteer Income Tax Assistance, Energetic Enterprise Youth Community Studio, and S.T.R.O.N.G. Youth, offering neighborhood youth opportunities in music, production, and community development.

We’ve hosted varied activities like health seminars, teen workshops, community events, shows, festivals, sports, and meetings, and house the New Birth Christian Church, a 501(c)(3) organization offering spiritual services to the community.
