Bensonhurst gets new senior center
A new senior citizens center is opening in Bensonhurst.
State Sen. Marty Golden made the big announcement.
The center — expected to provide 23,750 meals a year as well as a comprehensive array of social services, including health and wellness care, citizenship assistance for foreign-born members, and case management — will operate under the umbrella of Homecrest Community Services, overseen by the city’s Department of the Aging.
“As a longtime supporter of Homecrest Community Services, I am proud to be part of this historic announcement designating them as an official NYC Neighborhood Senior Center. I thank Commissioner Barrios-Paoli of the New York City Department for the Aging, for recognizing the need for this program to be established in my district,” Golden said.
