Westhab was founded in 1981 to address the affordable housing crisis in Westchester County. In our early years, we acquired vacant buildings and renovated them into quality transitional and permanent housing. In response to growing homelessness, Westhab expanded its focus to renovate and operate shelters in Westchester.
As our organization grew, we looked for ways to improve entire communities by engaging resident leaders and neighborhood stakeholders. Always intent not just on addressing the problem, but working to find a solution, Westhab began to provide employment services and youth programs, supporting families to break the cycle of poverty. We also undertook ground-up development of attractive, new affordable housing residences, including housing targeted toward seniors, veterans, young adults, and the disabled.
Today, our housing and social services combine to create a comprehensive community development approach—not just in Westchester, but also in New York City where we have recently expanded, developing affordable and supportive housing, operating homeless shelters, and providing youth programs and employment services.
Westhab is—Building Communities. Changing Lives.

Pajamas for Peace in Schools
Pajamas for Peace began with a Pajama drive in a community setting and at schools to honor the children and staff who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary. Every year on December 14th we go into schools and create Pajama Gift packages with each child so they could be a part of the giving process. We then take these creatively designed packages and donate them to children and families at our partnered shelters. We hope that the Pajamas for Peace Project promotes peace and inspires philanthropy and community service in our youth.
Follow us on @pajamasforpeace to see our continued work in schools.
