United Way of Westchester and Putnam believes that every child deserves to be in a loving home. As part of our outreach for the foster care program in Westchester County, UWWP held an appreciation lunch for new and seasoned foster parents at Yonkers Library on March 16. It was the first time that foster parents from Somers, Purchase, and Scarsdale, as well as from other communities throughout the county, met. The 30 parents that attended were able to share stories and gain support from one another.
