On April 15th
The Metropolitan Building Managers of New York
in cooperation with
The Scandinavian American Building Managers Guild
as a philanthropic endeavor will be joining forces to help spruce up the
Astoria Blue Feather Head Start
- AHRC Astoria Blue Feather Head Start is a Specialized Inclusionary Head Start Program offering an array of
programs, services, and supports for students with disabilities and developmental delays, including services for
students with autism, for families living in New York City.
- AHRC New York City – was founded in 1949 by parents of children with developmental delays. This was a
time when there were few services available – their children had been largely ignored or forgotten by society.
These parents initiated a grass roots movement that forever changed the lives of their children and
generations of other children.
- Astoria Blue Feather preschool was recently awarded the Gold Certificate of Excellence by the
Administration of Children and Family Services/US Department of Health and Human Services.
- ABF educates sixty-five children in inclusionary classrooms, twelve children in a self-contained class, and
ensures high teacher to student ratios in all instructional settings. Classrooms include young learners receiving
Special Education services, as well typically-developing children, from the local Astoria community. As a Head
Start program, Astoria Blue Feather is unique among AHRC New York City preschools.
