The Hewlett House – your source for support, encouragement, resources and hope.
The Hewlett House opened in March of 2001. Located at 96 Rockaway Road in Hewlett NY. It lies beyond a white picket fence and although it looks like an ordinary house; little do people know of the strength within.
The goal of The Hewlett House is to provide patients and their families a warm and welcoming place to obtain resources and education.
