Berkeley College Health Services Administration Club Serves
New York Residents in Need

Berkeley Brooklyn

 

In October 2016, student members of the Health Services Administration Club prepared and served breakfast to more than 240 homeless individuals at The Bowery Mission shelter in New York, NY. Members of the Brooklyn-based club also helped The Bowery Mission prepare for lunch service later in the day.

“Volunteering at The Bowery Mission was extremely gratifying,” said student Jonell Conway of Brooklyn, NY. “The people who came to The Bowery Mission were so thankful, but I was even more thankful to be there to serve them.”

The Health Services Administration Club was established in 2013 by LaToya Trowers-Bell, EdD, Chair, Health Services, Berkeley College Larry L. Luing School of Business®, with the goal of mentoring New York students through opportunities outside of the classroom.

“The field of Health Services Administration is more than just providing administrative or business services,” Dr. Trowers-Bell said. “It is also about serving your community. When you learn more about your community, you are better able to offer services to treat people’s health concerns.”

The visit to The Bowery Mission was just one of the Club’s efforts to provide support to New Yorkers in need. Earlier this year, members of the Club spent time caring for children at Ronald McDonald House in Manhattan, NY. The group has also devoted time at St. John’s Bread and Life in Brooklyn, NY, where College associates and faculty also volunteer annually.
