Sunnyside Community Services

Queens

Sunnyside Community Services (SCS) serves more than 9,000 children, youth, adults, and seniors in Western Queens each year. Their 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.

Elevating Older Adults

We work to assure the availability of quality services that support New York's growing older adult population. These services, provided to over 60,000 Older Adults each year by settlement houses, include: senior centers, case management, home delivered meals, adult day programs, mental health services, home care, and services in Naturally Occurring Retirement Communities (NORCs).

UNH accomplishes this through advocacy and policy analysis as well as by providing resources to our member agencies for program innovation and enhancement.
