Westchester Crystal Meth Anonymous (CMA) will now be meeting at The LOFT every Thursday from 7:30pm-8:30pm. 

Crystal Meth Anonymous is a fellowship of individuals who share their experience, strength and hope with each other, so they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from addiction to crystal meth. Those who attend are invited to an informal post-meeting fellowship at a nearby diner after the meeting (low prices and good food).

Talk Saves Lives: An Introduction to Suicide Prevention



Come join the kickoff meetings for WJCS Center Lane’s 25th anniversary!

In addition to remembering the amazing accomplishments of Center Lane since 1995, we’re taking this opportunity to explore how to build the necessary foundation to help LGBTQ+ youth create community, connect with culture and contribute to the world for the next quarter century! At this exploratory session, we’ll discover how we as a community can support and affirm all of our youth, what resources we have in Westchester, and what LGBTQ+ youth need not just to survive, but to thrive! Please join us in either Yonkers or White Plains in August as we begin to brainstorm, plan, and prepare for this very special milestone.  With all hands on deck from our community, we know that we can have an even more powerful impact on the lives of LGBTQ+ youth we serve. RSVP here!
