(Our) Mission

Our mission is to support neighbors in our community who struggle to meet basic human needs.

(Why) We Exist

(914) Cares was founded with the goal of helping to take care of our neighbors struggling with even the most basic needs: food, clothing, shelter, education and medical care. In the beginning, we simply acted as a conduit for donations of goods and volunteer hours for some amazing local nonprofits doing extraordinary work.
As we delved deeper, we realized that there was poverty right next door and all throughout Westchester. We were shocked and alarmed that this level of need existed in our own County. We also quickly realized that we had a strong base of supporters who wanted to help. So, we grew organically, first by increasing our geographical focus to include all of Westchester County, and then by expanding the programs within (914) Cares. Today, we are proud to have Kids’ Kloset, Baby Bank, Empty Bowls Westchester and Donation Drives as successful programs within our organization.
Moving forward, our focus will continue to be helping our neighbors in need by supporting local nonprofits as well as maintaining and growing our existing programs, with the ultimate goal of eradicating the cycle of poverty in Westchester.
We are so thankful for our supporters and volunteers all throughout the County. Together, we will strengthen the spirit of our community.
