The celebration for our 65thAnniversary is still underway as QCP unveiled our new banner this spring on our main building located at 81-15 164th Street. Rejoicing in helping he Queens Community for over six decades, the banner proudly displays QCP’s motto: “Progress Toward Independence, Achievement, and Community.”
Additionally, in celebration of QCP’s 65th Year Anniversary, a tribute to its Founder Natalie Katz Rogers was previewed on NY1.
After serving as an aeronautical engineer in Washington, D.C. during WWII, Ms. Rogers returned to Queens to help young people in the community. Through the years, her passion for helping those with special needs developed into her founding Queens Centers for Progress. Today, at 95-years-old and on QCP’s Board of Directors, Ms. Rogers says her motto has always been, “As much as I can for as long as I can.”
A true inspiration and true philanthropist, QCP honors and thanks its Founder, Natalie Katz Rogers for her service to our country and community.
