Connecting Residents to Vital Resources
As a part of my continuing advocacy work on behalf of our senior residents this week Village of Hempstead will be hosting a Senior Safety Fair and Luncheon. The goal of the fair is to connect senior citizens with the resources and tools necessary to protect themselves physically, financially and socially. During this event, seniors will learn about the many special programs and benefits available to increase their awareness of safety related resources and quality of life. In addition, Nassau County District Attorney Madeline Singas will introduce her new “Elder Abuse Unit” and Arlene Markerian, the Elder Abuse Unit Chief will give a presentation on the services this new unit will offer area seniors. Hempstead Police Sergeant Ivory Dixon will also share information about the Community Policing Unit’s “Safe Seniors” initiative.
This event is will take place on Wednesday, March 8, 2017 from 11am to 1pm at Kennedy Park, 335 Greenwich Street. This is in partnership with the Hempstead Housing Authority, Nassau County District Attorney’s Office, Hempstead Police Department, Family and Children’s Association, Operations Get Ahead, Inc., and the Hempstead Chapter of AARP. Numerous vendors will provide additional information and giveaways for attendees. If you would like to volunteer or for more information call 516-489-3400. Haga clic aquí para ver en español.
