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.


Be the first to hear our news . . . celebrate our successes . . . and learn how you can make a difference.
