OHEL to Temporarily Move Headquarters to Downtown Brooklyn; Beginning of Iconic Move to New Jaffa Family Campus

Brooklyn, NY, October 08, 2016 --(PR.com)-- After 47 years, OHEL Children’s Home and Family Services has out-grown its administrative offices at 4510 16th Avenue, Brooklyn.

The temporary move to downtown Brooklyn at 147 Prince St will largely house Administrative staff as OHEL plans for its move to its new building on Avenue M in Flatbush - The Jaffa Family Campus.

All OHEL’s main contact information remain the same.

This move will not in any way interrupt the broad range of programs and services provided by OHEL to thousands of people every day throughout New York City and Nassau County.

Within Brooklyn itself, OHEL has hundreds of residences, apartment programs, domestic violence shelters, as well as The Marvin Kaylie Tikvah Center at OHEL.

OHEL’s main Long Island office at The Kleinman Family Regional Center will continue to provide outpatient counseling services as well as the Lifetime Care Foundation and The Mel and Phyllis Zachter OHEL Institute for Training.

David Mandel, CEO of OHEL comments that “The number one focus of OHEL during this transition are the individuals we serve, and we are thankful for the dedication and professionalism shown by our staff during this time.”

OHEL’s Annual Gala on Sunday November 20th is themed “If OHEL’s Walls Could Talk,” which embraces the diversity of help OHEL provides to the community, and the new walls of The Jaffa Family Campus. The larger new campus in Flatbush will help OHEL meet the ever increasing needs and diversity of services necessitated by the community – all provided under one roof.
