HOW WE HELP

ORGANIZATIONS

Throughout the years, the Knights of York have contributed funds
and time to these community organizations.

Family Counseling Service

is a licensed, non-profit, non-sectarian agency serving Eastern Long Island. Established in 1971, it is a community-based, United Way agency providing treatment, prevention, education, crisis intervention and supportive services at its main office in Westhampton Beach and its satellite offices in E. Yaphank and Shirley. Our clients come from many areas of the East End including the Towns of Southampton, Riverhead, Brookhaven, East Hampton, Shelter Island and Southold. Each year, over 6,000 families and individuals benefit from our services.

Tourette’s Syndrome Program

Gregory Abatemarco Memorial Fund Family Counseling Service Tourette’s Syndrome Program – Gregory Abatemarco Memorial Fund is organized to help children with Tourette’s Syndrome, where the condition of the child isn’t always obvious. As a result, people shun these children because they are so different.

The David Center

was founded in 1999 by Dr. Patricia Elvir, a pediatrician, and her husband, W. James Pons, after they became aware of how difficult it is for parents of children with ASDs to identify and access the information, support, and programs their children need to meet their fullest potential. With a board of directors made up primarily of parents of children on the autism spectrum, The David Center has been a leader in the raising awareness, providing information and support, and empowering parents, families, and professionals.

Elmcor Youth and Adult Activities, Inc.

was started in 1965 by a group of concerned parents and senior citizens in the East Elmhurst/Corona area of Queens. The organization consisted then of three neighborhood recreational programs and a senior club. Elmcor developed from that small volunteer organization into a major provider of recreational and social services.
