The Lanza Family Center for All Ages is named for the family of Patricia Lanza, the late philanthropist whose $1 million challenge grant made FSW’s vision to create an intergenerational facility in lower Westchester possible. Thanks to the enthusiastic response of many generous donors, FSW was able to meet this challenge, purchase the property at 106 North Broadway in White Plains, and renovate the existing building to create a warm and inviting new center that will meet the needs of a diverse group of participants—older adults, young children and teens.
