State and local elected officials and other dignitaries visited ArchCare at Terence Cardinal Cooke Health Care Center on September 10 to celebrate the reopening of the Mona Gold Memorial Garden.

The outdoor patio and garden is named for Mona Gold, a social work assistant at TCC and one of the original employees of the center’s clinic for people with developmental disabilities. Constructed 27 years ago, the garden is a treasured space for residents to enjoy the outdoors and socialize.

In addition to expanding the garden’s collection of plants, a $250,000 grant from the Community Capital Assistance Program enabled TCC to redo the patio floor, replace chain link fencing with more attractive wrought iron fences and gates, repair brickwork and install new doors, lighting and a security system. 

ArchCare President and CEO Scott LaRue offered special thanks to former New York State Assembly member Adam Clayton Powell IV, whose work in the Assembly made the renovation possible, and unveiled a plaque in his honor.

“Thanks to Adam Clayton Powell IV and the New York State Assembly,” LaRue said, “the Mona Gold Garden is a safer and more beautiful place that will enhance the quality of life of our residents for many years to come. We are sincerely grateful to Mr. Powell for your support of our healthcare ministry in East Harlem, and for the restoration of this garden to provide a place of healing, peace and community.”
