Senator James Sanders, Jr. Responds to Abrupt Closing of Far Rockaway Community Center

By Garry Toms

NY1 News reported that “for the many children who call the Redfern Houses home, this community center has been a safe haven during after school hours.”

While the majority of those contacted did not response, State Senator James Sanders, Jr. issued the following statement.

“We are aware of the situation and we are working with the appropriate agencies to see that service is returned to the Redfern site as soon as possible. We don’t care how it’s done, but we insist that the people are served. It is sad that a reputable organization like the P.A.L. would withdraw at a moment’s notice. We are going to work with NYCHA to get a new organization in there.”
