Details
Homecrest Community Services, Inc. (HCS) is a non-profit, IRS 501C(3) corporation which provides community-based, multi-social, services for senior citizens, immigrants, children and families living in southern Brooklyn. HCS was established in 1997 as a grass-roots effort by local residents to help meet the urgent need for social, health, public benefit and other essential services by the rapidly growing, and greatly underserved, Asian-American population who moved to Sheepshead Bay within the past decades. In 2004, HCS opened a satellite senior Citizens center in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn which is the first Asian-sponsored senior center of its kind in the area. The HCS membership has grown from 300 members in 1997 to over 3000, members in 2007, most of whom are Chinese-Americans who immigrated to the U.S. from China, Hong Kong, Vietnam and other southeast Asian countries. The HCS centers are non-denominational and open to all seniors 60 years or older, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or other characteristic.
