The New York Center for Community Excellence was created for the purpose of promoting optimal health and nutrition, education, community development and economic opportunity through assistance to and investment in individuals, children and families, entrepreneurs, non-governmental agencies and other community-based organizations.
The New York Center for Community Excellence envisions communities where its residents are educated and empowered with the ability to utilize:
- Health maintenance information and nutritional guidance to prevent and detect illness and maintain overall optimal health
- Quality day care and after school programs to strengthen a child’s educational foundation, with continued mentoring, training and skill building through young adulthood
- Information and resources that lead to securing jobs and job creation, financial stability and affordable housing.
The New York Center for Community Excellence collaborates with people and organizations, public and private, in order to achieve measurable outcomes that will strengthen and build New York’s Metropolitan area.
