No final deci­sion was reached Mon­day night regard­ing the pos­si­ble future of the Hicksville Com­mu­nity Ser­vice Cen­ter.

The meet­ing, which was held on Mon­day evening in Com­mu­nity Memo­r­ial Hos­pi­tal and attracted over 30 com­mu­nity lead­ers and con­cerned cit­i­zens, includ­ing a num­ber of HCSC board mem­bers.

The Cen­ter was estab­lished in 1986 with the goal of improv­ing the qual­ity of life of finan­cially chal­lenged indi­vid­u­als and fam­i­lies by offer­ing them a local facil­ity to meet with var­i­ous agen­cies that deliver needed assis­tance. Many do not have trans­porta­tion to obtain assis­tance in loca­tions else­where.

United Way, which has been the center’s main fund­ing source, has made sig­nif­i­cant fund­ing cuts to the orga­ni­za­tion. In the past, United Way has pro­vided about 75 per­cent of the center’s total revenue.
