Last year, Options proudly assisted more than 2,400 Long Islanders, adults and children, through our housing and case management programs. All of our program participants have very low incomes and struggle with serious illness and disability . Sadly, most cannot afford to celebrate the holidays with gifts for their loved ones. So each year, Options matches families and individuals in our programs with generous volunteers from the community to try to fulfill the wishes of as many families as possible. Last year, we were able to help more than 30 families!

Won’t you help brighten the holiday season for one of our families? Options will provide a gift wish list for a child or family to help you shop. If you would like to get involved and support a needy family please contact us by telephone (631)361-9020 x 1163 or email, jschwab@optionscl.org. We would be delighted to answer any questions.
