the Homeless Is Our
Responsibility, Inc,) an
all-volunteer, interfaith, not-for-profit
in central Westchester County, NY, began in 1985
when a half-dozen churches
and temples joined forces and opened their doors
to provide overnight shelter for nineteen
adults. In the years since, SHORE has
expanded its mission to
include other housing-related programs,
primarily permanent, affordable rental homes for
SHORE constructed 14 new affordable units in
White Plains for 7
first-time homeowners and 7 formerly homeless
families. In 2010 SHORE completed the
construction of a new 2-family home in Ardsley,
NY. We also manage a 2-family home in Sleepy
Hollow, NY. In 2012 SHORE initiated a project to
acquire 3 additional 2-family homes and merge
the operation of I CARE (Interfaith Council for
Affordable Residence) in the Larchmont and
Mamaroneck communities. The merger will complete
in the coming months.
SHORE stands nearly alone in Westchester County in providing permanent housing
for homeless and near homeless families, at rents they can afford.
YES, I’D LIKE TO BE A “SHORE SUPPORTER” for 2017
No one is homeless by choice.
Instead, the choice is ours - to open our hearts and help.
