Neighbors Link was founded to meet the needs of 4,000 Latino immigrants who represent 26% of Mount Kisco’s total population. When problems at many levels became apparent, concerned members of the community raised private funds to convert a masonry warehouse into a community center for low-income working people. That was in the year 2000, and it signaled the remarkable transformation of a whole community.
Today, Neighbors Link offers a fully staffed center with comprehensive programs for:
- Adult Education
- Training for Effective Parenting
- Employment and Economic Development
- Computer Skill Training
- Leadership Training
- Entrepreneurial Development
- Recreation and Community-Building
- Personal and vocational enhancement
- After-school tutoring program at Mt. Kisco Elementary School
- On-site help and referrals for personal and family issues such as housing and homelessness, medical and mental health, family budgeting, tax payer identification, non-payment of wages, alcoholism, domestic violence, immigration issues and other critical concerns
In addition to supporting Neighbors Link both financially and with volunteers, working with Neighbors Link is a part of our Confirmation program.
