The Family and Children’s Society Celebrates Building Reopening

Family & Children’s Society

Speaking on the June 7 edition of the weekly local public affairs program, Southern Tier Close Up, Deputy Executive Director of the Family & Children’s Society of Binghamton, Diane Kubik says the agency is finally recovered from damage suffered when a neighboring building burned and is ready to celebrate reopening.

Kubik says, while they initially thought everything was fine with their facility, she got a call the morning after the fire from Executive Director Fred DuFour summoning her to the property as it was discovered the efforts of firefighters to put out the blaze at the apartment building next door caused flooding of the Family and Children’s Society building at 257 Main Street.

Clients, classes, staff and programs were all moved into a borrowed building provided by Marchuska Brothers Construction, which caused logistic challenges as well as emotional issues for some of the clients that don’t take change well.

Kubik says a ribbon cutting and a dedication of a new children’s waiting room will take place from 3-5 p.m. June 10.

Kubik also talks about some of the diverse programs and services the Society provides for clients that range in age from infants to seniors.
