What's Happening
We were so sorry to hear of the recent passing of long-time program participant of our In-Home Respite Services , WWII Veteran Angelo Auletta. He was beloved by many and especially by his respite companion, Dolores. We offer our deepest condolences to his friends and family, and remember him fondly with this video .
Parenting Classes Kick Start Health & Wellness Workshops
The Nature’s Bounty of Wellness program initiative at EAC Network is in full swing! With the help of a wellness team led by Registered Dietician and EAC Network's Health Educator Laura Zelenka-Dufresne, the initial phase at our Long Island Parenting Institute has been focusing on nutrition and wellness education. The first set of classes, entitled “Healthy Children, Happy Parents,” stressed the importance of developing good nutrition habits early on.
Seniors Stay Active, Safely
Seniors at our North Merrick and Hempstead Senior Centers are having fun and staying active this summer with classes like this one - exercising safely! Instructor Lisa Wisel showed everyone how to move and stay active strategically. If you know an older adult who might benefit from socialization and classes such as these, check out our Senior Community Services Centers with locations in Long Beach, Hempstead, Port Washington, and North Merrick.
In honor of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, Kathryn Cannino (right), Program Director of our Long Island Parenting Institute , participated in Global Big Latch On at the Peconic Bay Medical Center where parents and professionals gathered to support breastfeeding and early childhood development.

EAC Network is proud to be a recipient of tickets from Seats of Dreams , a charity that delivers donated entertainment tickets to underserved children. Most recently, a family from our Nassau Supervised Visitation program enjoyed a Long Island Ducks game. We thank Seats of Dreams for their continuous support and we're grateful that this family had an amazing day! View more photos here .
