URGENT NEEDS ALERT

Below, please find the latest 914Cares initiatives that are in progress and need community support.

Meeting urgent needs today.
The end of poverty tomorrow.

Westchester has a reputation as a wealthy community. In reality, 1 in 4 Westchester families live in poverty and nearly 4 in 10 school-aged children are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.
We believe we can and must do better.
By meeting urgent needs today, 914Cares is investing in the end of poverty tomorrow. All across Westchester. For every individual. Every child. Every family. For the well-being of all our neighbors and our entire community.
