Over the past several years, we at the K Woods Foundation have spent countless hours investing in the critical needs of the Park Hill, Staten Island community. It has been an honor to serve the community that raised us, and it is our mission to fill the gaps that leave the children, and families, in dire need of social services, healthcare, educational programs, extracurricular activities and more. The K Woods Foundation Community Center is being designed with the aim to build a more healthy, united, and engaged community. We believe strongly that this must be a collaborative effort with the needs of the people on the forefront.

On June 15, 2022 we broke ground on Phase one of construction with the expected completion date of September 2022. This includes major physical upgrades to the infrastructure starting with the roof basketball court and new playground being made possible mostly through grassroots organizing and crowdfunding. The new basketball court and playground area will feature modern equipment designed to be developmentally appropriate for all ages and abilities. The new fitness facilities, and new outdoor recreation facilities hope to equalize the access to basic necessities for well-being and improve the quality of life of residents on a day-to-day basis by working to change habits and create new positive social patterns throughout the complex

Phase two will focus on the interior of the 13,000 sq. ft. community center which will serve as the base of operations for the organization’s work as well as a second home for the Park Hill community. It will feature a state-of-the-art facility with all the resources and educational tools needed to support youth development and training opportunities.

In addition to building a community center, we help hundreds of families find meaningful connection and a sense of unity by hosting free bus trips out of town to camp sites, amusement parks, and more. Community members get a chance to play sports, swim, BBQ, and experience things many wouldn’t have access to otherwise. The K Woods Foundation also meets the immediate needs of the people with multiple food, clothing, and supply distributions throughout the year. A contribution to the K Woods Foundation will help maximize the benefit and resources we are able to provide children and families immediately and will go towards the completion of the future Park Hill Community Center.

See you there!
