Gov. Hochul Joins Life’s WORC To Honor Founder Victoria Schneps-Yunis

Gov. Kathy Hochul made the trip to Garden City to honor Victoria Schneps-Yunis, founder of Life’s WORC and Schneps Media, at Life’s WORC’s headquarters, which was recently renamed the Victoria Schneps-Yunis Building.

Schneps-Yunis founded Life’s WORC in 1971 after finding out of the deteriorating conditions at the former Willowbrook State School on Staten Island, where her daughter Lara Schneps had been. In her opening remarks, Schneps-Yunis recalled Lara’s story.
