WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Clay Art Center in Port Chester and Ossining Children’s Center are the newest members of Nonprofit Westchester, an organization that provides the local nonprofit sector with a single, unified voice for the role it plays in the economy.
“Both the Clay Art Center and Ossining Children’s Center are vital to our community here in Westchester County,” said Joanna Straub, NPW executive director. “When we support the arts, we help our community thrive with creativity. When we provide children’s services, we are investing in our future. We are so pleased to welcome both groups to the Nonprofit Westchester family and hope they benefit from our many resources.” The Clay Art Center was founded in 1957 by Katherine Choy, whose dream was to open a center for the advancement of the ceramic arts. Regular events at the center include adult classes and workshops, as well as youth classes and camps. There are also regular exhibitions on display and other related arts events. The Clay Art Center is at 40 Beech St., Port Chester. For more information, visit www.clayartcenter.org or call 914-937-2047.
The Ossining Children’s Center strives for a sense of extended family in its partnership with parents. The nonprofit works to support parents who are juggling their roles as family breadwinners and nurturers.
The center was founded in 1895 to provide educational and enriching care to the children of immigrant women whose husbands were killed or disabled while working on the railroad or the Croton Aqueduct. Today, it cares for more than 160 children, ages 8 weeks through grade five, and offers a variety of early childhood and school-age programs.
