Our Mission

We aim to restore hope to Westchester County's
men, women and children in need by providing them
with food, shelter and support -and lifting them to
greater self-sufficiency with dignity and respect.


Our Story
& Vision

Almost 40 years ago, a bold group of parishioners at Grace Church identified an emerging homeless problem in Westchester County and stepped up to do something about it. They built the foundation for what is now Lifting Up Westchester.

Their values of a vibrant, healthy community that takes care of its neighbors in need remain our values to this day.



On April 11th, we celebrated our 40th Anniversary at our Oasis of Hope Gala

Homelessness in Westchester

On the night of the 2018 HUD sponsored census of the homeless, there were 1,850 County residents* who were homeless.

64% were families with children

*This number does not include those who were “doubling” up with friends or family - estimated at 2,100 children alone.
