Queens lawmaker secures funding for Ohel Children’s Home and Family Services in Kew Gardens Hills


Congresswoman Grace Meng recently visited the Ohel Children’s Home and Family Services’ residence for the developmentally disabled in Kew Gardens to commemorate $233,000 in funds she secured for upgrading the site. 

The building, which opened in 1978 and is located on Kissena Boulevard, is a residence for 10 adult men with developmental and intellectual disabilities. The money will be used to overhaul its kitchen and bathroom facilities, and make them more accessible, particularly for older individuals and those with mobility issues including residents who use wheelchairs.
