Family & Children’s Association received a $43,000 grant from United Way of Long Island.
The Mineola-based organization aims to help Long Island families and communities tackle life challenges. The funding will help support FCA’s five divisions, which include addiction prevention, mental health and wellness, senior and adult services, family support and residential care.
“With demand for services increasing, especially among seniors, families impacted by addiction and communities concerned about gang violence, the support we get from United Way of Long Island is absolutely vital,” said Dr. Jeffrey Reynolds, president and CEO of FCA. “We are probably one of United Way’s oldest community partners and we are thankful to be working shoulder to shoulder with United Way to make Long Island a healthier, safer and just plain better place to live and work.”
The Community Partner Grant is part of United Way’s Long Island Impact Fund, which works with more than 100 nonprofit partners to benefit Long Islanders in need.
