In 2013, local service providers and community leaders began searching for a unifying solution to address problems in Southwest Yonkers. This Yonkers organizing initiative formally began in partnership with Westchester United in October 2014 with the addition of a full-time organizer.
The initiative seeks to build a team of local leaders to build a power base of organizations that can address the issues being felt by families and community members in the neighborhood, the county and beyond.
We are currently offering a series of training sessions in English and Spanish that are engaging dozens of leaders.
Contact Westchester United leaders or staff to learn more and get involved.
