Garden City, N.Y., February 15, 2023 – FCA is pleased to have been awarded a $3.1 million grant this morning as part of NYS Governor Kathy Hochul’s Statewide Health Care Facility Transformation Program. These vital funds will help us open a fully integrated, modern healthcare clinic in Westbury where consumers will be able to access state-of-the-art addiction treatment, mental health counseling and primary care under one roof.
We are especially excited about this project given the continued rise in overdoses in Nassau and an unparalleled mental health crisis that demands innovative solutions. We thank the Governor for her continued commitment to the well-being of New York’s families, her attention to Long Island and her support of FCA.
FCA is a not-for-profit agency helping more than 30,000 Long Islanders each year. For the last 138 years, the organization has worked to protect and strengthen vulnerable children, seniors, families and communities on Long Island.
FCA believes in the potential of Long Island – a place where no child, senior, family or community is left to struggle alone with barriers to health care, education, employment or economic prosperity. Long Island continues to be one of the greatest place in the world to live and raise a family for many; FCA exists to ensure that be the case for all.
