Seniors at the Catholic Charities Neighborhood Services Howard Beach Senior Center gathered Tuesday for a New Year’s party sponsored by state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach) and Assemblyman Phil Goldfeder (D-Far Rockaway) at the group’s temporary location in St. Helen’s Father Dooley Hall.
The center was displaced after Hurricane Sandy destroyed its home in the basement of the Rockwood Park Jewish Center, but Catholic Charities Vice President of Older Adult Services Judy Kleve announced at the party that will find a new home soon in the organization’s senior apartment complex under construction at the former Fineson Developmental Center on Cross Bay Boulevard.
