We are the “Helping Hands” of the Town of North Hempstead. As such, our mission is to create and maintain programs to improve the quality of life for every single one of our close to 240,000 residents. Our programs touch all age groups, from our young children and our youth to our seniors and everyone in between. Our mock Town Board meetings, for example, give young students a peek into the workings of local government. And our Fun Day Monday senior get-togethers at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington encourage meaningful peer-to-peer social interaction, which according to experts, is essential for a rewarding and healthy retirement.
