The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank colleagues from ABS Behavioral Health Services, Counter Force Prevention Program, National Society for Hebrew Day Schools, Kingsboro Addiction Treatment Center, Brooklyn Defender Services, Stewart Behavioral Health Services and Dynamite Youth, Inc for attending our first virtual community discussion about the state of problem gambling in Brooklyn. We appreciate your feedback about the types of gambling that are happening in Brooklyn and could not have done the work we have so far without all of you.  

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank the Brooklyn Defender Services for inviting our Team Leader to conduct a Problem Gambling 101 training with such an engaged and appreciative crowd. We are excited to come back next month to facilitate the Problem Gambling and Suicide training for their social workers. We appreciate all of the great work they do in Brooklyn!  

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank the Kingsboro Addiction Treatment Center for participating in our statewide Screening Day in honor of Recovery Month. We are grateful to have them as partners in the community who care so much about problem gambling and look forward to our partnership in future Screening Days!
