Happenings around Hamaspik

Get Your Goat (Milk)

At the Women’s Division of Hamaspik of Rockland County’s Day Hab program, healthy mind and body alike are always on the agenda.  On July 18, participants at the program visited the Gertner Goat Farm in Kiryas Joel, New York, where they not only got to pet a live goat but milk it, too—and enjoy the healthy and nutrient-packed taste that is fresh goat milk.


New Comm Hab Coordinator in Kings

On July 18, longtime Hamaspik of Kings County Director of Community Services Shaya Ross formally welcomed Mrs. Riky Tauber as the agency’s newest Com Hab Coordinator.  Mrs. Tauber joins veteran Com Hab Coordinator Mrs. Raizy Piller at Hamaspik of Kings’ Borough Park nerve center at the corner of 14th Ave. and 41st St.  Welcome!


Community Habilitation (Com Hab) is a Hamaspik mainstay by which youths with disabilities receive one-on-one support staffers who help them reach their community-oriented goals.


Said goals include such daily-life staples as personal finance, shopping or even housekeeping for young adults, and familiarity with institutions like doctors’ offices for children on the program.
