What is summer without a round of golf? Last month, the EP team attended Westhab, Inc. 20th Annual Golf Classic. A now yearly summer tradition for the team which benefits Westhab’s mission of developing affordable housing and services to communities in NY.
When founded in 1981, Westhab started acquiring 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 the organization grew, they started providing employment services and youth programs, supporting families to break the cycle of poverty. Today, Westhab provides housing and social services combine to create a comprehensive community development approach—not just in Westchester, but also in New York City where they have recently expanded, developing affordable and supportive housing, operating homeless shelters, and providing youth programs and employment services.
We appreciate our partnership with this great organization and look forward to attending more events in the future!
