The Character Council of Hempstead is made up selected members of the
community who share the common goal of serving our community through
promoting and rewarding good character. The group is a non-profit*,
non-religious organization founded in May 2007 that seeks other
like-minded volunteers to further the understanding and practice of good
character on a wider basis in the community.
At the request of Mayor Michael Wolfe, Jr., the Hempstead City Council
declared unanimously in April 2006 that Hempstead is a City of Character.
That resolution qualified Hempstead to be member of the International
Association of Cities of Character (IACC), comprised of over 200 cities and
states across the nation. Being a member of IACC gives our Character
Council access to printed resources, character consultants, and seminars,
as well as links with other cities willing to share their resources for
developing good character.
