WHERE THERE IS A NEED WE STAND READY TO SERVE.
The H.E.S., located in Southeast Brooklyn, serves more than 1,200 people daily, which accounts for more than 300,000 annual visits. We are the area’s major source of educational, recreational, cultural, fitness, sports, and social-service programs for area residents and we annually provide services to more than 8,500 participants.
The H.E.S. serves the diverse populations living in Southeast Brooklyn including Jewish and African- American families and a large population of immigrant families from the Caribbean, Asia, Israel, and the former Soviet Union. The agency is a community resource hosting local community and civic groups.
Special populations have a place at the H.E.S.. The agency operates an array of programs for developmentally disabled children and adults. There are several programs available for autistic children and their families.
The agency is the primary source of support for working parents and their children. Members and patrons have access to much-needed social services, childcare, and recreational activities including a daycare program, after-school care, special needs programs, youth, and adult programs. The agency’s largest programs are for children and teenagers. Each year more than 800 preschoolers, children, and teenagers participate in H.E.S. programs and activities.
