Since the Community Center of Northern Westchester (CCNW) first opened its doors in 1992, it has been providing food and clothing to its clients. Today the food pantry remains at the core of the Center, but the range of services it offers has greatly expanded providing for thousands of households across more than 30 communities. The CCNW seeks to improve the well-being and self-sufficiency of neighbors in need.
The CCNW offers a range of classes and special programs to improve employment opportunities for its clients and assists families in gaining access to other resources, including health care, education, and social services. Services are offered free of charge to all who need help — new arrivals, as well as residents who have deep roots in the community.
Church members support the Center by volunteering their time in the food pantry, clothing boutique, teaching classes and workshops, such as English or computer skills, maintaining the building and grounds, packing school supplies or assisting in fundraising efforts.
