On Thursday June 30th, CFS held its annual Family Day event at the Bronx Zoo.  Over 300 service recipients and their families were in attendance, enjoying a beautiful, sunny day at the Zoo.  Our guests enjoyed the various Zoo exhibits, a picnic lunch and the chance to connect with each other.  To add to the fun of the day, three Tablets and three gift cards were raffled off.  Lisa Bau, a wonderful artist who has worked with CFS in the past, designed the artwork on the t-shirts, which all participants received.  A wonderful time was held by all!

On Wednesday June 15th, The Center for Family Support held a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at the Frost Ave. Apartments in Brooklyn. In addition to the excitement of celebrating the opening of this beautiful building, guests had the opportunity to tour the apartments of the CFS Service Recipient’s, as well as enjoy food provided by Well Rooted Kitchen.  The Frost Ave. Apartment building was built by the Dunn Development Corporation, a socially-conscious, award winning real estate developer with expertise in affordable and supportive housing. The company’s mission is to build the highest quality housing for low and middle-income New Yorker’s.  The three individuals making speeches at the ribbon cutting ceremony were residents Alexander Brygider, Angel Pagon and Dunn Development CEO, Martin Dunn. A representative from the Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities was in attendance and the local Fire Department also attended, creating a very neighborly atmosphere.
