Vernon. YSPW provides a home-like alternative to the Westchester County Jail for young men awaiting disposition of various criminal charges. The shelter houses up to 12 young men, age 16-21 years old, and is the only shelter in the state of NY serving youth that are involved in the adult criminal justice system.

There are several ways to support this effort:

  • A collection bin for donated items will be in the church office from March 1st to March 14th.
  • Items can also be brought to the speaker event.
  • You can also make a cash/check donation for bed supplies. Checks should be made out to St. John’s ECW and sent to the church office.
