Summer is here in Central New York, and even though the sun hasn’t been shining that much, we have been bringing light and hope to problem gambling by spreading awareness and connecting individuals and families to help.

Thank you to Maria Maldonado-Lewis and Keenan Lewis for having the Central PGRC as a guest on their radio show @IKnowICanRadio.   Bringing awareness to our communities that HELP is available and there is hope is a key goal of the Central PGRC. We are excited to have I Know I Can Radio, as a partner, spreading messages of HOPE and CONCERN.
