Hempstead, NY - July 13, 2016 - EAC Network’s Nassau Community Service program, in conjunction with the Nassau County District Attorney’s Office of Madeline Singas, celebrated the achievements of local organizations in the community service field on June 22, 2016. The Community Service program places individuals with court-mandated community service with dozens of local agencies to serve out their sentence.
EAC Network and District Attorney Singas honored the Hicksville Boys and Girls Club, Gateway Youth Outreach, and Posh Pets Long Beach Animal Shelter with the Premiere Partner Award for providing outstanding community service experiences to EAC Network’s clients. All 65 participating agencies that collaborate with EAC Network were recognized for providing clients with community service and, in some cases thereafter, paid employment opportunities. Community Service participants are also placed within EAC Network’s programs, including Stoplift, Anger Management, HEAP, and Supervised Visitation.
District Attorney Singas also awarded Rhonda Wainwright-Jones, a Senior Director at EAC Network, with the Nassau County District Attorney’s Certificate of Appreciation and Gratitude for her work with the Community Service program.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with District Attorney Madeline Singas in honoring such wonderful organizations on Long Island,” said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO of EAC Network. “We are thankful for the ability to come together and celebrate all of our Community Service program’s participating agencies, as well as to see our staff recognized for their dedication.”
