The funds allocated by Westchester County will support the Youth Shelter's mission by continuing to provide support, job training, and educational programs for young men. Through these programs, the Shelter aims to instill the values of discipline and showing respect to others. To learn more about the Youth Shelter Program of Westchester, visit
