Assistance will continue for Queens Seniors
State Senator Serphin R. Maltese (Queens) obtained a $65,000 grant that will allow Queens Multi Service Center to continue to provide vital assistance to seniors in Glendale, Ridgewood, Middle Village and surrounding communities.
Several weeks ago, Queens Multi Service was notified that the money it had been receiving from the City was being terminated. Without that money, according to QMS Director Roseann Rosado, they would have been forced to close.
“The loss of Queens Multi Service Center would directly impact thousands of seniors who rely on their assistance and guidance in obtaining services through Medicare, food stamps, SCRIE, EPIC and other entitlement programs,” said Senator Maltese. “I believe it is imperative to ensure they continue to operate.”
“On behalf of RBSCC, Inc. - Queens Multi Service and the senior citizens we serve, we want to express our sincere thanks to Senator Serphin Maltese for his leadership in working so hard to replace the funding recently lost by Queens Multi Service. Without this funding, we would certainly have had to close our doors and thus render our senior citizens helpless in maintaining the quality of life benefits and entitlements they so richly deserve,” said Roseann Rosado, Queens Multi Service Director. “This is once again a testament to the true dedication and concern of Senator Maltese to this community and all its constituents. Thank you once again for rising to the occasion and preserving the quality of life for so many.”
The emergency funding is in addition to a $90,000 grant that Senator Maltese already allocated for transportation services, the Saturday “mini-senior center” and case management assistance, as well as $25,000 provided by City Councilman Anthony Como.
“Working in a close partnership with City Councilman Como, I am very pleased to be able to provide this critical funding for Queens Multi Service,” said Senator Maltese. “I cannot tell you how many times my office has referred seniors to their center when they needed someone to help them obtain services that would mean the difference between staying in their own home or being forced to move into a facility. They have served the seniors of our communities for over 20 years and I firmly believe they
are indispensable and invaluable and we will be working closely together to make sure that they continue to serve our seniors and all our residents.”
