Monique Waterman, founder and program director of East Flatbush Village, snipped the ribbon on a new community service center on Nov. 5 with staff and invited guests.
East Flatbush Village is dedicated to providing access to free or affordable programs and improving the quality of life of the communities it serves, she said.
“We provide programs for youth, schools, communities and families as a whole to provide full wrap-around services,” she said, adding the programs focus on academics, athletics, arts, cultural, and health enrichment, physical, social emotional mentorship, community organizing and anti-violence initiatives.
Waterman thanked Yeshaya Wasserman of SGW Properties for providing financial support to assist with offsetting the cost to run the center’s proactive anti-violence initiatives. Standing O mensch Yeshaya has even taken a step further to donate his office space to the initiative to better service the community.
Standing O welcomes East Flatbush Village to the neighborhood.
