Sunnyside Community Services (SCS) serves more than 9,000 children, youth, adults, and seniors in Western Queens each year. Our mission is to enrich the lives of residents by providing caring, quality services to meet their social, health, educational, and recreational needs and thereby strengthen this multicultural community. Started in 1974 as a senior center operating out of a church basement, SCS has responded to emerging community needs over the years to become a comprehensive multiservice center, and became a settlement house in 1989. SCS now has more than 40 social, educational, and recreational activities each week for active seniors; geriatric mental health services, benefits counseling, and case management services; congregate meals for seniors and Meals on Wheels for homebound elderly; transportation and on-site adult day services for physically frail and cognitively impaired seniors; and Medicaid and non-Medicaid home care services for more than 1,500 homebound elderly and disabled adults through subsidiary home care agencies. SCS also runs youth services, including after-school programs at two local elementary schools and a middle school; a Beacon community center; an evening teen center; summer and school-vacation camps; college and career counseling; and employment training and apprenticeships for youth. For immigrants, SCS provides employment training with vocational English instruction for adults interested in becoming home care workers; and ESOL for children and adults. SCS also co-sponsors a 70-unit residence for elderly and disabled individuals.
