Empowering People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities to Lead Fuller Lives

Activity of the Month

The Saint Patrick’s Day Parade on Forest Avenue is always a special event marked on the calendar at the Amboy residence. The individuals love to get all bundled up and enjoy this fun outdoor community outing.  It gives them an opportunity to thank the NYPD, NYFD and all other local agencies. They get a chance to shake hands with some of our elected officials and many members of the community. Jeffrey said “I always end up seeing people I know and old friends”. Joe was quoted as saying “this year it was cold outside so my favorite moment was going inside Jody’s Club Forest for lunch”. Caroline said her favorite moment was “watching the marching bands that played loud music”. Once they returned home, everyone got warm, spoke to their house mates and shared their pictures. Amboy is already looking forward to next year’s parade.  They want to make signs to show their support for the NYPD. They love living on Staten Island and they take a lot of pride in being part of the community!
