About Us

Port Chester Cares began in August 2007 by the Council Of Community Services, Executive Director Ann Barringer Spaeth, with the assistance of other service providers in Port Chester such as the Open Door, Family Services of Westchester, and The Carver Center. Through the mentoring of Student Assistance Services, Port Chester Cares applied for a Drug Free Communities grant in March 2008 and received support in August 2008. The Drug Free Communities Support Program is a function of the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) as well as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).


Today, Port Chester Cares is a coalition made up of community members who are dedicated to making Port Chester a healthier place to live, preventing substance abuse in Port Chester. Through policy change, advocacy and initiatives, the coalition seeks to connect its youth, families and community by offering positive activities and relevant, helpful information.


What We Do

Port Chester Cares continues to bring a variety of activities to your local calendar, for youth, families, and community members alike. With programming constantly evolving and seasonal initiatives in abundance, here are a few staple activities that you might recognize from years past. Get involved in the planning stages, or just come join us!
