My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Westchester Jewish Community Services, Inc., White Plains, NY, USA
WJCS serves a tremendous role in Westchester.
The organization embraces the diversity of the County and is able to support every need that arises.
An example of this is the Women's Home Center on Barton in White Plains. This center has been operating for almost 2 years and provides a safe and healthy home environment for 6 Jewish women. These 6 women are in their 20's and 30's and are developmentally disabled. This is their first home away from home which provides them with independence. The experience gives these women supervision, their own living area, daily responsibilities in a group setting, and either part time employment or school - all of which are coordinated by WJCS.
It is an amazing program that has changed the lives of these women.
It is imperative to understand the needs of our community and the critical need to serve it, as WJCS does.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would make sure the public understands that WJCS serves MUCH more than Jewish programs.
