ABOUT US

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 YSOW 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.

Throughout the years the YSOW has helped hundreds of young people and with our aftercare program we continue to ensure that our youth remain successful while reintegrating back into their communities.
