My Second Home (MSH) is an award-winning, dementia care, intergenerational adult day program — the only one of its kind in Westchester County and a model for the nation. MSH is a program of Family Services of Westchester and is celebrating over 20 years in operation. Since 1998, MSH has offered an affordable alternative to assisted living or nursing home care. MSH’s highly trained staff provide stimulating activities that help older adults continue to find joy and meaning
in their lives.

Back(pack) to School! The Sharing Shelf’s Backpacks to School campaign is going on now!

The Sharing Shelf’s 2019 Backpacks to School campaign is officially underway. Our goal is to fill 1,250 backpacks for children from pre-kindergarten through high school living in Westchester County. While we live in one of our nation’s wealthiest counties, nearly 60,000 children in Westchester live in low-income homes while 36% of children qualify for free or reduced lunch. For these children and their families, finding the resources to purchase new school supplies is an added strain as they struggle to make ends meet. The Sharing Shelf, a program of Family Services of Westchester, strives to ease this burden by providing students with backpacks filled with the supplies they’ll need to start the school year.
