Nonprofit helps newly arrived immigrants arriving in Westchester
Ossining Padres Hispanos says it is seeing an uptick in undocumented immigrants needing assistance.
The nonprofit takes in donated clothes, toys and food and distributes them to families living in Westchester County.
The organization also offers workforce training to get OSHA-certified and become a home health aide.
One of its most well attended classes is English as a second language, which more than 100 people attend every week.
"We try to help them, so families don't feel lonely in this country, because it's a new world when they come here," said Ana Guzman, founder and executive director. "So, we try to make them, their life a little better."
Ossining Padres Hispanos accepts gently used in-season clothing, toys and household items every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
