OSSINING COMMUNITY The Town of Ossining is a diverse community. Over 30% 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, relevant and cost effective.
PROGRAMS IN OSSINING Neighbors Link has been providing Workforce Development and Parent Education programs in Ossining for several years. In April 2018, we launched our new facility at 23-25 Spring Street. We offer a wide array of programming including English as a Second Language classes, Parent-Child Together classes, Parent Education, Family Night and Workforce Development programs. Neighbors Link Community Law Practice is also headquartered in our Ossining office and provides critical legal information and services to the community.

PARTNERSHIPS IN OSSINING In Ossining, Neighbors Link has been fortunate to work with a group of over 30 stakeholders who have been participating in ongoing conversations regarding opportunities to further strengthen community ties while also supporting the healthy integration of immigrants. These stakeholders 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.
