Mission Statement

The Forest Hills Community House is committed to the personal growth of the diverse people it serves and to the creation of self-reliant, open, responsible communities. Established in the settlement house tradition, it embodies the core belief that all persons can and want to grow and that all can contribute. Through broad-based, innovative leadership, it offers programs and services which help all people improve their lives and work together to strengthen their communities. The Forest Hills Community House, located in Queens, is more than a social service provider: it is a welcoming, extended family for both new and long-time residents.

Description

The Forest Hills Community House is a settlement house founded in 1975 to assist, strengthen, and help improve the quality of life of individuals, families, and communities. Today, our 14 program areas reach over 20,000 people throughout Queens. Our 15 sites serve as centers for community gathering, organizing, and social service activity, and our activities work to promote inter-ganerational and cross-cultural cooperation and exchange. The Forest Hills Community House also works with other organizations in networks and coalitions to advocate for and provide services borough-wide. The Forest Hills Community House is a private, non-sectarian, non-profit agency with a Board of Directors that is comprised of community residents. We are funded through a mix of city, state and federal government contracts, foundation and corporate grants, and private donations.
