Welcome to Sunnyside Community Services, Sunnyside Citywide Home Care Services, and Sunnyside Home Care Project, serving the communities of Western Queens since 1974 and now providing home care throughout New York City.
The members and staff of the Center for Active Older Adults got in the spirit of Haloween during a bewitching holday party on Thursday, Oct. 30.
During National Volunteer Week, Sunnyside Community Services threw a party to celebrate all the volunteers working in all program and service areas. We can't thank them enough! Visit the SCS Facebook page to see an album of guests, honored speakers, food, and festivities.
Mayor Bill de Blasio visited Sunnyside UP, our pre-Kindergarten program, to talk to the children and their parents about the importance of Universal Pre-K (UPK) and early childhood education. NY1 featured the visit in a story you can watch here. On hand to show their support were New York State Senator Michael Gianaris, New York City Council Member Jimmy Van Bramer, and New York State Assemblywoman Catherine Nolan, shown below with Mayor de Blasio and SCS Executive Director Judy Zangwill.
Thanks to a grant from Amie’s Place Foundation, we are introducing “Pet Pals,” a new program for homebound seniors and family caregivers that will match them with volunteers to provide assistance with pet care. A Pet Pals volunteer might walk the dog, for example, or take the pet to a vet appointment. Volunteers also provide companionship to the senior. In addition, SCS will provide volunteers to foster the pet in the event that a client enters the hospital for a short‐term stay. If you would like help with your pet, would like to volunteer, or would like more information, all (718) 784‐6173, ext. 479 or click here.
