What’s New:

The Queens PGRC would like to thank the Jamaica Community Partnership Program for inviting us to their monthly community resource meeting.  This meeting afforded us the opportunity to connect with other prevention and recovery services.  We look forward to making more connections within the Queens community in hopes of increasing public knowledge of problem gambling and its symptoms.



The Queens PGRC is a program of the New York Council on Problem Gambling, which is funded by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services.  The Queens PGRC is dedicated to addressing the issue of problem gambling in Queens through increasing public awareness and connecting those adversely affected with services that can help them.

The Queens PGRC is dedicated to the positive transformation of lives harmed by problem gambling. This vision of transformation includes individuals with a gambling problem as well as their families and communities. With a focus on supporting the individual and reducing barriers to care, the Queens PGRC is truly the premier center for providing problem gambling services in Queens, NY.
