SCO Family of Services Holds “Get to Know SCO” Open House

March 21, 2024 / Independent Youth News

On March 14th, SCO Family of Services held an Open House at the administrative headquarters in Garden City. The event was an opportunity for friends and community members to stop by and get to know a little more about SCO.

Staff from SCO’s Long Island programs were on hand to speak to attendees about the services they provide and the children, youth, adults, and families they help. Programs included services for people with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, health & wellness programs on the Madonna Heights campus, the Robert J. McMahon Children’s Center and Tyree Learning Center, and SCO’s Foster Care program.

In addition, the Human Resources Department shared the job opportunities that SCO has on Long Island, and the Development Department showcased the many ways individuals and corporations can get involved in support of SCO.

Girls Scouts from SCO’s Beacon at MS 35 showed off their entrepreneurial skills selling Girl Scout cookies at the event. They were, of course, a big hit!

Citations were presented to SCO Family of Services President & CEO Suzette Gordon by representatives of Senator Patricia Canzoneri-Fitzpatrick, Assemblywoman Gina L. Sillitti, and Nassau County Executive Bruce Blakeman.

A special thanks to our government friends for their continued support: Nassau Deputy County Executive Anissa Moore, Nassau Legislator Samantha A. Goetz, and Nassau Legislator Scott Davis.

Thank you, as well, to SCO Board Member and Nassau County Comptroller Elaine Phillips for her continued support.
