New Horizon Celebrates 24 Years Serving Rockaway
The New Horizon Counseling Center in Far Rockaway celebrated twentyfour years of service to the community recently with two days of special events that were held on March 30 and 31. In addition, the agency held its annual family day on April 3.
The adult daycare center opened at 1600 Central Avenue in 1987 before moving to its own building at the old Chase Manhattan Bank location on Beach 20 Street several years ago. It is better known to those who attend and work there as ‘the second chance family,’ and is the only adult day care center in Rockaway that is open daily to serve its clients.
Denise Harkless, who was born in Detroit, has been attending New Horizon for three years. In an open letter to everyone at the program, she credits the center for giving her “the tools she needs to problem solve.”
“This NHCC [New Horizon Counseling Center] is the best in the state to attend, and I know I’ve had the best,” Harkless continued. “Congratulations to NHCC [on your] anniversary. May you continue putting lives back together.”
