About Us

If the borough of Queens is considered as the most diverse county in the United States then Elmhurst surely must be its capital. Immigrants from all over the globe flock to our sprawling neighborhood to make a better life for themselves and their children. Roam the streets of Elmhurst and you will be amazed at the multitude of ethnic culinary offerings. How incredibly diverse is our community? We are not sure, but we do know we have people from Bangladesh, Belize, Bhutan, Burma, Cuba, China, Colombia, Ecuador, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Guyana, Korea, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, Tibet, and Vietnam living, working or attending schools in our neighborhood. Faced with such a vast cultural and language diversity, our grassroot organization aim to connect, inform, educate, and unite all residents for the best interest of our community.
