The Town of Ossining is a diverse community. 28% of Ossining’s population is foreign born. Within Ossining’s immigrant population, the largest group (70%) comes from Latin America. This diversity leads to a culturally rich community. At the same time, a significant portion of the immigrant population faces challenges such as low income, employer abuses and concerns about legal status. This creates a need for programming that is proactive and effective to respond in ways that are impactful, empowering and effective.
Partnerships in Ossining
In April 2018, after years of grassroots work with local stakeholders, Neighbors Link opened our center in Ossining at 23-25 Spring Street. The Ossining stakeholders group include representatives from the school district, library and BOCES; elected officials; nonprofit leaders; heads of area houses of worship; local immigrant leaders; and longer-term residents. Working together with these stakeholders allows us to ensure that we are combining efforts in order to reach the needs of the entire community.
In the years since, our commitment to serve the Ossining community has only deepened. In 2021, Neighbors Link completed a construction project that provides more than 5,000 square feet of physical space at our center in Ossining. This storefront space in the center of Ossining’s downtown business district significantly increases our capacity to serve more people and positions us to contribute to community revitalization goals.
