U.S. SENATOR KIRSTEN GILLEBRAND, HENRY CHAPMAN, ACTING PRESIDENT OF YWCA, CONGRESSMAN MONDAIRE JONES, 17TH Congressional District, and White Plains Mayor Tom Roach at presentation of the grant to White Plains Y Monday afternoon.
Senator Gillebrand explained the funds would fund the expansion of programs such as the Children’s Learning Center and Kids Connection classroom space which will benefit from the windfall created by the omnibus appropriations agreement. Part of the grant, according to Mr. Chapman, Acting President of the Y, said the program would help fund the planned Center for Racial Justice.

Chapman said designs for the use of unused areas of the Y to expand classrooms and establish the new Center would now be sought. He anticipated the project would take 2 to 3 years.
