The Westchester Index is an interactive online tool that will help communities understand their health profiles, and highlight where more interventions are needed.ncludes data on hundreds of socioeconomic factors in the county.  Users can search for indicators related to poverty, housing, education, employment, certain health conditions, childhood obesity, and many more.  

Westchester Community Foundation partnered with the Community Health Care Association of New York State (CHCANYS) and the Westchester County GIS Department to develop this web-based application, the first of its kind in Westchester.


When the LOFT approached the Foundation about a study to identify unmet needs in the LGBTQ community we knew that this was a timely and important issue. We convened a Task Force of LGBT leaders, and selected a research firm to conduct the study. 

Our task force worked many long hours and dedicated their energy and commitment to ensure that the final report was top-notch.


The STAND UP AND BE COUNTED report gives concrete data and can provide a path to identify opportunities to make Westchester more inclusive and accepting.
