OUR PROGRAMS

The Youth Shelter Program of Westchester has two main program structures: residential & community aftercare. 

 

Residential Program

Our residential program is a 12 bed facility located in lower Westchester County, NY that serves over 150 young men ages 18-21 annually . The length of stay is determined by an individual's willingness to participate and their sentence/charges. During their stay at the youth Shelter our young men participate in structured programming that uphold these core principles, discipline, self respect and respect for others while promoting unity and teamwork.  

Community Aftercare Program

 

Once a youth is discharged from our facility this is when our community aftercare team kicks in to ensure positive reintegration. Our community aftercare team provides ongoing case management and support for youth for a minimum of one year. 

 

Our two program structures of residential and community aftercare are rooted in 5 major program elements: clinical, education, vocational, community services/volunteerism and family reunification.  As these combined program elements allow us to holistically service our young men to restore, refine and reshape their future outlook. 

 

For more information regarding our programs, please contact Jordan Cormier, Director of Programming at jcormier@ysow.org or via phone at 914-668-4702.
