The Pelham PACT Coalition (PACT) and Pelham’s Community Care Center (CCC) have joined forces, recognizing the complementary strengths of each organization, to become a community-based organization with a mission of greater breadth and depth in an effort to ensure the very best for Pelham’s youth and families.
As a newly formed joint effort, Pelham Together will advocate for and develop empowered youth, engaged adults, and energized community partners, harnessing the shared sense of responsibility that makes Pelham so unique.
The role of Pelham Together will be to connect our community, inform our families, and elevate our young people.
We believe the Pelham community depends on all of us, a collective “we”, to be actively involved with a shared sense of responsibility. The underlying mission is to ensure a healthy and vibrant community for and with the youth of Pelham.
Our community coalition is made up of all sectors in the community including schools, youth, parents, businesses, local government, law enforcement, healthcare professionals, faith-based organizations, civic / volunteer organizations, youth-serving organizations, media, and prevention experts exemplifying the need for everyone to be involved in support of our youth.
he Humane Society of Westchester, founded in 1911 as the New Rochelle Humane Society, is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to promoting the human/animal bond through the compassionate care and treatment of animals throughout the communities we serve in Westchester County and beyond. To that end, our goal is to create a living environment that is not just a shelter, but a transitional home for stray, lost, abandoned, injured, and abused animals, until they can ultimately be placed in loving permanent homes. Through promotion of successful pet adoption, animal population control, and public education of animal welfare issues, we advance our belief that pet ownership is a lifetime commitment.
Their mission is to create a network of caring people to serve the needs of the communities where we all live together, and to tackle health issues at a grassroots level. Project REWIND I and II address crucial issues of physical and mental health that are impacting our youth: binge drinking and sexual assault. The REWIND programs use current research and innovative teaching strategies to empower teens and young adults to intervene. The programs are available to schools and other groups for a nominal fee. Project CHILDD (Community Helping in Learning about Developmental Disabilities), provides free monthly social and arts programs to children (aged 3-18) with developmental delays.
We have been serving the needs of the Pelham community since 1939. Those needs have changed over time, as have the community and its residents, but the commitment of our organization has remained the same—and grown.
Today, our 150+ member/volunteers do a terrific job in making sure every dollar we raise goes directly back to the Pelham community in the form of support for our various programs for seniors, youth, disabled and the needy.
