  • The New Horizon Counseling Center in Far Rockaway celebrated eighteen years of service to the community recently with two days of special activities that were held on March 22 and 23.
  • Clients and guests enjoyed a fashion show, a talent competition, an exhibit of arts and crafts, games and a disco that brought both clients and staff onto the dance floor.

    Since 1987, the adult daycare center, better known to those who attend and work there as ‘the second chance family’, has been open daily serving its clients.
