WHITE PLAINS, NY – June 29, 2019 — The Westchester County Department of Social Services, is committed to providing a vital safety net for those in need of housing during their most vulnerable time. The County has long provided shelter services in Yonkers. While that commitment continues, the Sharing Community’s Mens Drop-in Center, at 1 Hudson Street in Yonkers, will be closing June 30, at 6:30 PM, and the drop in shelter will be moving to a YWCA site at 68 Palisade Avenue, beginning June 30, at 6:30 PM. The YWCA staff will also be available at 1 Hudson Street and Larkin Plaza on June 30, at 6:30 PM, to answer questions and coordinate rides to the new location.
The YWCA will be providing shelter services to men only, along with meals for clients who will be housed there.
The County is committed to making this transition as smooth as possible, but most of all the County is committed to making sure the people of this County are provided with the services they need.
