Queens Community House

Meet Your Neighbor: Karine Yusupov

It was always my dream to open up a daycare center. Challenges stood in my way for so many years, but I’m determined. Last year, with the support of my friends and family, I finally opened up my own in-home daycare. In no time at all, my home was filled toddlers, and I earned the reputation of the neighborhood grandma.

Queens is a diverse place to live, and my business reflects that. I have children from so many different countries, backgrounds and religions at my center. I’m proud that my program is a place for children to learn about diversity and acceptance.

I joined QCH’s Queens Childcare Network last year to learn about different opportunities for in-home daycare providers like myself. I met so many people who are doing exactly what I’m doing. At meetings and events we share resources and get to know each other. Being a member of the Queens Childcare Network connects means having colleagues to support you.

Meet Your Neighbor: Jose Deleon

Back in high school, I was looking to make a change. My habits weren’t healthy, and my academics suffered. I wanted to become a different person. That’s when I joined Voyages Preparatory High School.

QCH offers a program in the school called Learning to Work (LTW), which places students in internships and provides support along the way. I interned at Elmhurst Hospital as a clerical aide. I went to school during the day and worked there at night. LTW staff provided a circle of support I didn’t have at that time in my life. I realize now they were essential to my success. I graduated in 2014.

It wasn’t too long after that I was offered a job in QCH’s Youth Employment Services Department. I worked with youth, helping them find jobs and internships. I’ve been in their shoes, so I know what it’s like.

Now, I’m a QCH CASP (College Access and Success Program) member looking to pursue a degree in Education. CASP staff mentor me, help with my resume and keep me on track. All these programs work together to support me.
