ABOUT THE YOUTH SHELTER

PROGRAM OF WESTCHESTER

For over 40 years, the Youth Shelter Program of Westchester, Inc., has been providing a home-like alternative to jail for young men awaiting disposition of various criminal charges. Conceived by a Westchester judge and school teacher who recognized the need for early intervention in the lives of young offenders, the YSPW was formally incorporated as a not-for-profit in New York in 1975. Its initial mission was to formulate a plan and solicit funds for a temporary shelter or residential facility for youth prior to trial.

Within two years a suitable residential facility was found on Eighth Street in Mount Vernon, New York, and was completely renovated according to standards established by the New York State Department of Social Services with the assistance of Westchester County and the United States Law Enforcement Assistance Administration.
