What’s New:

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank Monique, Alicia, and the rest of the team at East New York Community Provider Partnership for welcoming us to your meeting. We learned a lot about the great work that is being done for families of East New York and Brownsville and are happy to be a resource for any families in your community who are impacted by problem gambling. We look forward to providing more information to your providers during at the March meeting in honor of Problem Gambling Awareness Month!  

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank Rabbi Yehuda Zakutisnky for hosting our Team Leader for a wonderful discussion about gambling in the Jewish community and ways that the PGRC and the Brooklyn chapter of the National Society for Hebrew Day Schools can work together to ensure that those who are struggling are able to get help.  

The Brooklyn PGRC is thankful to have met with Penny Caquias from Millennium Development.  We are so happy that Penny reached out to us about our services.  We were able to meet and learn more about wide scope of people that Millennium Development is helping in this borough. We are looking forward to our upcoming presentations at your senior centers and we look forward to hearing from you about future ways that we can collaborate on the events you have planned for the summer. Thank you for helping us get the word out about problem gambling and our services in Brooklyn!  

The Brooklyn PGRC would like to thank Kathy Regalado from the UFT Member Assistance Program (MAP) for arranging the Problem Gambling 101 training we provided to your members. We were pleased to see the interest that participants had in the subject and look forward to collaborating with you on more trainings as the UFT MAP continues to expand its continuing education services.
