Special thanks to CClean Commercial Cleaning and our anonymous donor for their generous matching gifts.

Our donor-funded scholarships are special because they go to families who don't otherwise qualify for financial assistance to help pay for child care, and because they empower Westchester parents to further their education.
Recent recipients include a single mother from Mt. Vernon, whose 1-year old son is in care while she finishes her undergrad degree, and a mother from Ossining who was able to fulfill her dream of graduating from college because of the scholarship program. She got her degree in May!
We've partnered with Toys for Tots again to collect toys to donate to children less fortunate. Visit our Wishlist here on Amazon so that the toys may be delivered directly to the Council. Thanking YOU in advance for your generosity.

Can you help us raise another $25,000 to help families get access to child care? Our donor-funded scholarships are special, because they enable us to reach those who don't otherwise qualify for assistance. This includes families facing homelessness or overcoming domestic violence.
