Hispanic Resource Center Moves Onto Mamaroneck Avenue

On Thursday, May 20 more than 75  members of the community, local officials, representatives of the school district and clergy gathered for the grand opening of the Hispanic Resource Center of Larchmont and Mamaroneck at its new location, 623 Mamaroneck Avenue in Mamaroneck Village.  HRC Executive Director Zoe Colon and Board Chairman John Gitlitz were joined in cutting the ribbon by Mamaroneck Village Deputy Mayor Louis Santoro, Mamaroneck Village Trustee Toni Ryan,  New York State Senator Suzi Oppenheimer and other local officials.

“This new location allows the Hispanic Resource Center to finally have its offices and services all under one roof,” said Dr. Gitlitz. Zoe Colon added, “We are so pleased to be in a location with easy access to the community we serve.”

Previously, the HRC operated its Work Center at the Strait Gate Church and had offices for its administrative personnel and case managers at St. Thomas Church, many blocks away. Dr. Gitlitz gratefully acknowledged the two churches for their support of the HRC and its programs.

The ribbon cutting  was followed by an open house throughout the day in which  members of the community could tour the new space, learn about program’s and services and enjoy refreshments, which included a cake in the shape of the new HRC headquarters.
