Individuals who have nowhere else to turn come to Lifting Up Westchester for help. 

Our Services & Programs serve thousands of our neighbors in need.

Although Westchester is one of the wealthiest areas in the country, there are still persistent pockets of poverty throughout the county. 2,000 of our neighbors are homeless and 200,000 individuals will be hungry sometime during the coming year.  Lifting Up Westchester provides a comprehensive range of services to assist the most vulnerable men, women and children among us—and start each on their own unique path to self-sufficiency.
