Over the past quarter century we have witnessed major changes in human services policies and funding. These changes have made it increasingly necessary for agencies and service providers to work together to provide better services, more effectively advocate for their constituents, and reduce costs. It is these changes and the strength and vision of two such agencies, Futura House (founded in 1968) and Human Development Services of Port Chester (founded in 1979), which prompted them to merge in 1999 and form the dynamic organization known as Human Development Services of Westchester, Inc. Today, Human Development Services of Westchester (HDSW) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) multi-service community-based organization with an annual budget of $5.7 million dollars. Human Development Services of Westchester is licensed by the New York State Office of Mental Health as a provider of housing and support services to individuals recovering from severe mental illness. HDSW currently serves over 1,000 individuals and families throughout Westchester County, New York.

Operation Fuel is a private, not-for-profit agency that provides emergency energy assistance to state residents who do not qualify for or have exhausted their government assistance.
Operation Fuel partners with communities, businesses, government and individuals to ensure people in need have access to year-round energy assistance.
 During the late 1970's, a worldwide oil embargo caused an unprecedented escalation in home energy costs, particularly home heating oil. Although federal and state governments had developed energy assistance programs for poor families, low-income working poor families who were not eligible for government help and in crisis were left out in the cold. In 1977, Operation Fuel was created as a temporary crisis intervention program. The mission was to raise funds to help those who fell through the gaps in government programs. Thirty years later we are still devoted to the needs of the community and responding to the same crisis -- the potentially high cost of home heating oil and gas prices and the unpredictable New England weather.

ReCycle North's mission is to (1) protect the environment by reducing the amount of reusable and repairable items dumped in landfills, (2) give individuals in transition valuable job skills, technical training and more opportunity, and (3) alleviate the effects of poverty by making vital household goods and building materials more readily available. In pursuit of these goals, ReCycle North will: self-finance operations to the highest level possible through reuse sales and professional reuse and training services, serve disadvantaged youth and individuals who are homeless, unemployed, dependent on public assistance, or struggle with physical or mental barriers to employment, develop staff capabilities and teamwork through continuous learning, evaluation, and challengecollaborate with other community organizations and serve as a community resource, and cultivate an entrepreneurial spirit that will allow the organization to grow to meet evolving challenges.ReCycle North was built on the premise that precious human and material resources could be better utilized to protect the environment and improve human dignity. The founders saw the mountains of trash filling our landfills and recognized the potential opportunity this waste represented if only a market for reusable and repairable household items could be created. In the ranks of the homeless and other long-term unemployed, ReCycle North's founders saw a different type of waste that included lost dreams, broken promises, and demoralized souls seeking purpose and opportunity. From household goods and furniture, to large and small appliances, electronics, and computers, ReCycle North has created new reuse opportunities and at the same time new vocational training areas for disadvantaged individuals in need of new skills.

Housing Choice Voucher Program

BHA provides rental assistance to over 1,700 households through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The Voucher program includes both tenant-based and project-based assistance.

With Section 8 Tenant-based Assistance, you find an apartment which meets your needs. If the landlord agrees to participate in the program, the rent is reasonable and the apartment meets HUD Housing Quality Standards, BHA pays a portion of the rent directly to the landlord. You pay the balance of the rent and your utility costs. Most participants pay between 30% and no more than 40% of their income for rent and utilities. The Fact Sheet for Applicants provides more information on the Housing Choice Voucher program.

The Inland Empire Women's Resource Center was founded in 2002 to provide a place where women can receive counseling and assistance on a number of issues under one roof. Our target market are women on welfare, women on parole and women in domestic violence shelters and their families as well. We recognized the need to provide these services under one roof due to the rising numbers of single parent households, teen pregnancies,women in prisons and domestic violence shelters. These women and their families are often unable to get the help that they need due to low income and lack of transportation. By providing these services at very reduced rates or free to those that qualify, we are able to make a difference in the lives of the families in our community. Our mission is to bring families closer and to keep them united by tearing down the barriers that divide them.
