Extra Info    Lifting Up Westchester (LUW) has for four decades been one of Westchester County’s largest social service nonprofits. It seeks to make sure that all of the neighborhoods of the County flourish and it is here to repair well-being when some area starts to break down. It also attempts to construct a strong foundation to maintain community well-being over time.
