Community Conversations event flyer September 28 at Bracey Apartments

Monthly meetings bring information, resources to neighborhoods around the City 

This past June, the City of New Rochelle took a proactive step in combating the opioid and drug crisis with a community fair and forum at Montefiore New Rochelle’s HETI Conference Center, bringing together residents and local and area nonprofits for an educational evening to discuss available resources and strategies to combat substance abuse and addiction. 

Building on the tremendous success of the event, and now including another critical component, mental health- the City is launching “Community Conversations”, a series of monthly meetings hosted in neighborhoods throughout New Rochelle beginning in September and continuing through the end of the year:

September 28: Bracey Apartments

October 26: Young Israel of New Rochelle

November 30: Parkside Place

December 14: Mascaro Boys and Girls Club

The meeting format will be an open dialogue, taking place on Thursdays from 6-8PM and facilitated by the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependency-Westchester.

“These neighborhood meetings provide an ongoing opportunity for residents get the information they need to recognize signs of addition and mental health struggles, learn strategies to help their loved ones, and find out what each of us can do to raise the level of health and safety in our community,” said City Manager Kathleen Gill.

For more information, contact Charles Curtis, Director of Community Engagement or (914) 654-8929. The City’s website features a resource guide with information on drug and alcohol addiction services at
