New Executive Director
Joins Lifting Up Westchester
Anahaita Kotval has replaced LUW Executive Director, Paul Anderson-Winchell who has retired after 11 years in the position. Kotval, an attorney and Tarrytown resident, was formerly the Chief Operating Officer & General Counsel of Inspirica Inc., Stamford nonprofit that finds permanent housing for the homeless. She brings years of nonprofit experience, superior business and legal acumen and tremendous passion to the job.
Charlie Bevier, our beloved Director of Homeless & Shelter Services saved thousands of lives during his 30 year career at LUW. Help keep Charlie's memory alive by donating to a Memorial Tree that will be installed on a wall at Open Arms in his honor.
Brighter Futures Summer Camp changes lives for homeless and low-income children. It gives them hope, builds their self-confidence and encourages them to dream big. Be a part of the change by donating to provide 4 weeks of fun and enrichment for at-risk kids.
Most of our 90 campers live in homeless shelters or have lived in homeless shelters in the past. All need camp scholarships to attend camp. They also need bathing suits, towels, goggles, suntan lotion and shoes, things that their parents can't afford to buy for them.
