Highbridge Community Life Center (HCLC), a local Bronx community based organization, will host its first Open House at 1438 Ogden Avenue on March 31st, 2010.

The guests will include representatives from the offices of the Public Advocate and Congressman, to name a few. The open house will provide the opportunity to tour the new facility and observe how HCLC promotes technology through smart boards and other instructional technologies, virtual health lectures and demonstrations.

Highbridge Community Life Center is a leader in providing a free, quality education to the community. The center offers ESL, ABE, GED and citizenship classes, a quality health careers program that trains students to become Certified Nurse’s Assistants, Pharmacy Technicians, Phlebotomy and EKG Technicians, as well as other free services for community residents.

“It’s our opportunity to let the surrounding community know what Highbridge has to offer,” said Ronnie Hector, Highbridge Associate Director. “We want to cater to as many residents as possible and that begins with letting them know that we’re here.”

HCLC’s mission is to enable the residents of the Highbridge Community to take more complete charge of their own lives and to empower them to use their newfound strength to improve the lives of their families and neighbors. HCLC accomplishes this mission by providing a wide range of educational and social service to 4,800 unduplicated participants annually in order to nurture the growth of self-sufficiency in individuals, families and the community.

The new location opened in September, 2009. The Open House will be held at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, March 31st. For more information, please call 646-393-9533 or visit here.
