Listen to Angela DiRosa’s interview with Clay Moden on Country 106.5 WYRK

Western Problem Gambling Resource Center staff will be keeping you up to date by sharing all the wonderful activities we, and our partners our partners are doing to help raise awareness of problem gambling. We invite you to share what you, your organization, group, or community is doing to help individuals and families looking for help to stop gambling by emailing us at: WesternPGRC@nyproblemgambling.org.

You will have a chance to meet the Western PGRC staff, Angela DiRosa and Jeffrey Wierzbicki to ask questions and share valuable resources. We have made so many great friends over the first two years (yes, already!) and are looking forward to building even more long-lasting collaborative relationships this summer!

The summer is off to a hot start!

It was really great learning about the Financial Education Program at Jericho Road Community Health Center. We are looking forward to working with Tyshaun and the amazing staff at Jericho Road to build a strong partnership and connect individuals and families in the community who have been negatively impacted by problem gambling.
