The communities of Northern Westchester provide privacy in a country setting 40 minutes from White Plains and 70 minutes from Manhattan. However, the charm of 2-4 acre lots can mask a challenging situation for victims of intimate partner, family, and sexual abuse, isolating them when they need help the most.
None of the numerous organizations providing counseling and legal services to victims is located north of I-287, which makes our bucolic communities a geographically under-served area of the county.
It is New Dawn Family Resource Center's goal to make the same services that are available in lower Westchester County, readily accessible to victims in Northern Westchester.

Provide and expand support for programs and services for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault, elder abuse, and human trafficking in northern Westchester.
Domestic violence has no bias and it takes a community to defeat. We are building a community that supports the victims that suffer through domestic abuse. It is a 37-minute drive to get from New Dawn to the White Plains City Court, where many of the closest services are provided. This can take 3 hours out of a victim's day when many victims are pressured into accounting for all hours of the day. We have brought these services right to your doorstep. Nobody should have to go through the terror of domestic violence and Northern Westchester victims will not have to go through it alone on our account.
