WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – Members of Family Services of Westchester (FSW) and more than 100 guests including local dignitaries attended a ribbon-cutting ceremony Tuesday at the new Lanza Family Center for All Ages.
The 18,000-square-foot facility will allow children, teens and older adults to come together to enjoy activities such as gardening, sharing meals, singing songs, cooking side-by-side, and other special events.
“There are so many people responsible for helping us get to this point including my colleagues on the Board, FSW staff and most importantly our generous donors,” said Nick Wolff, FSW’s chairman of the board and a longtime White Plains resident, in a press release.
The center is modeled after another FSW intergenerational program, My Second Home in Mount Kisco.
“Our only regret is that Pat Lanza, whose $1 million challenge grant enabled us to embark on this project, did not live to see her vision become reality,” said Susan B. Wayne, FSW’s president and chief executive officer, in a press release.
Lanza died in March 2014.
