NYC Baby Shower – Far Rockaway

On Saturday, May 7, 2016, LYFE attended The NYC Baby Shower held at Beach Channel High School in Far Rockaway, Queens. LYFE teacher, Caterine Lugo, and LYFE social worker, Naomi Greenberg, from LYFE at Long Island City High School, spoke to new and expecting parents about LYFE’s supportive services. In addition to learning about NYC agencies, attendees were inspired by guest speakers, Jeremy Kohomban, President & CEO of the Children’s Village, Benita Miller, Executive Director of NYC Children’s Cabinet, Michele Titus, NY State Assembly Member, and First Lady of NYC, Chirlane McCray. Children enjoyed the special reading of the book, “Love Is/Amor Es” by the First Lady of NYC. LYFE is having a blast meeting families throughout the five boroughs and is looking forward to attending the next Baby Shower, specifically for young parents, on May 21st in the Bronx!
