Youth Shelter Program of Westchester Grant

A year ago, the Youth Shelter Program of Westchester was selected to be one of just eight sites throughout the country to participate in the Motion for Justice, Reshaping Prosecution initiative through the Vera Institute of Justice, to learn how we can move from overcriminalization to thriving communities. 

As a result of this incredible partnership, YSOW we will be receiving a $250,000 unrestricted operating grant from the Vera Institute. 

Vera President Nicholas R. Turner stated, “At Vera, we are committed to building not just our own power, but that of our partners and the field in which we work, and this is one tangible way in which we can do so.”

August 4: NPW's Emerging Leaders Program visits Feeding Westchester

The NPW Emerging Leaders program had the unique opportunity to visit Feeding Westchester and learn more about the unsettling reality of hunger in Westchester. The group had the honor of hearing from Karen Erren, Feeding Westchester CEO and NPW board member, and also learned so much from amazing presentations on strategic planning by their fellow ELP classmates and Feeding Westchester teammembers Martine Campoli and Christopher McGregor.


The ELPers also got a behind-the-scenes tour of the incredible warehouse followed by a healthy cooking class focusing on "Just say Yes to fruits and veggies". The group then enjoyed the delicious vegetable and fruit salsa and some fantastic wine. Plus - everyone took home a bag loaded with fresh produce! We can't thank the team at Feeding Westchester enough for planning such a special and fun event.

Huge thanks also to Adam Kintish of M&T Bank for joining us and sponsoring the incredible ELP program. Stay tuned for the Class of 2023 Application announcement in early October.
