Community Services in Pomonok Houses
At the QCH Pomonok Community Center in Flushing, we provide a network of services, programs and activities that respond directly to the expressed challenges and concerns of residents of the Pomonok Houses and the surrounding community. Our goal is to help build a stronger, more stable community through the development of local leadership that includes both adults and youth.Our community organizing project is working to identify program opportunities and potential partners, and actively engage Pomonok residents, religious and community leaders and other organized groups in the revitalization. The community organizing staff are conducting a formal community needs assessment, the results of which will be used to craft new and continuing programming.
In the summer of 2011, QCH launched a weekly volunteer-driven Pomonok Community Fresh Connect Farmer's Market in the parking lot of the community center in the Pomonok Houses. The market sells local and mostly organic produce that is grown at a farm in Pennsylvania, Pomonok's own vegetable garden , a 4-acre farm at the nearby John Bowne High School and Woori Farms, a farm in Orange County. Many of the volunteers that participate in the planning committee, plant and tend the garden, now also run the market are older adults from the community.
The market is held every Thursday from 10am to 4pm through November. It will reopen in the summer of 2013, date TBD. The market accepts FMNP, WIC, and EBT to make the produce available to as many residents as possible to shop there. The market aims to make healthy locally-grown produce more accessible for people who have trouble accessing traditional supermarkets. QCH’s Farmers’ Market is part of Healthy Communities through Healthy Foods Initiative, a collaboration between United Neighborhood Houses NY and NY Community Trust and is a grant recipient of the NYS Department of Agriculture & Markets Fresh Connect Farmers Market Program.
Currently we offer the following services:
