Open House

All are welcome to join the newly formed Helderberg Family and Community Organization (HFCO) at our open house on February 7th, 2018 from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. at the Knox Reformed Church, Knox.

The mission of the HFCO is to support the growth of children and their families by offering programs and opportunities to grow socially, academically, and physically. We seek to connect children with caring adults, and provide challenging, diverse and interesting programming, which will allow children to explore their interests and develop their strengths in a caring and supportive community.

 Our open house will include a presentation to introduce the organization’s mission, philosophy, goals, structure and plans for the future.  Learn how to become involved through a variety of opportunities. Join with founding members to discuss how we can work together to strengthen the communities of the Albany County Hilltowns.
