Elmcor Youth and Adult Activities, Inc. was started in 1965 by a group of concerned parents and senior citizens in the East Elmhurst/Corona area of Queens, New York. At the time, the organization consisted of three neighborhood recreational programs and a senior’s club. Elmcor developed from that small volunteer organization into a major provider of human services with clients ranging from pre-schoolers to seniors. Today, Elmcor is one of the largest non-profit community-based service agencies in Queens.


Elmcor’s mission is to enrich the lives of individuals and families and to build a better Queens community by providing quality recreation, education and social service programs while fostering the values of responsibility and respect.
