Description & History
The United Hindu Cultural Council (UHCC) Senior Center was founded in the living room of its Founder, Chan Jamoona, and has grown tremendously in the past ten years, to over 1,000 registered seniors. Its current location is in South Ozone Park.
The UHCC is a non-profit organization that strives to meet the various socio-economic needs of the growing immigrant populations, including those of the Caribbean and South Asian descent from such communities as Richmond Hill, South Ozone Park, Woodhaven, Hollis, Jamaica, St. Albans, and every borough of New York City.
The UHCC is committed to promoting unity among all religious institutions, community-based organizations, and businesses in Queens, and it has been involved in organizing a number of health related, social, and cultural events that have been well received by the community.
