Thank you Mets! Familia's Family Hosts Forestdale Kids

Forestdale was honored to be included in the "Familia's Family" Program at CitiField. The goal of the program is to continue to raise awareness about the thousands of local foster children in need of homes and the opportunity for families to serve as foster parents, adoptive families and mentors. The children got to meet Jeurys Familia and watch the game!

Melinda Katz Is A Champion of Forestdale!

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz awarded Forestdale $41,000 for the purchase of a passenger van. Staff will be able to bring clients to Forestdale's dental clinic, preventive health check-ups, workshops, cultural events, and more.
