This analysis from the Westchester Children’s Association (WCA) provides a useful statistical snapshot of the social and economic conditions facing families in our community. WCA is compiling similar profiles for all the cities in Westchester. The degree of social distress in the urban centers of the region is a stark reminder that Westchester’s idyllic image is often at odds with the reality facing many residents. It is important to remember that every data point represents a human being, not just a bloodless number.
WCA is known for its effective advocacy, and is probably the most authoritative source of data on the challenges confronting children in the county.
