We are ReSET

ReSET Westchester, Inc. was created to welcome and assure that new refugees have a safe home, and are prepared to lead productive and independent lives in the New York area.

How you can help TODAY!

ReSET Northern Westchester is on the move! Our resettlement initiative is energized by eleven religious and civic organizations that serve the Northern Westchester community (Please see the list on the bottom of the page).

We have now settled one person who is in his own home and has started his first job in America! We have just moved another family of 3 into their new home, and have also welcomed a family of 5 (soon to be 6) as our third family. In June, we will be welcoming our fourth family, a family of five, to the USA. And ReSET has just signed an agreement with Neighbors Link who has agreed to be our fiscal sponsor.  

ReSET is moving fast and we need your financial support… now!

ReSET plays a direct role in helping refugees establish new homes in our neighborhood. Welcoming persecuted, lonely, and hungry people from other countries is America’s most noble tradition. ReSET will help refugees on the road to self-sufficiency by providing life-altering support during their transition to resettling in their new homes.

Our tasks are both complex and costly. These include obtaining affordable housing, furniture, employment, transportation, English language training, getting kids, if any, enrolled in schools, dealing with government agencies for assistance, and counseling if needed.

Thank you very much for your support this year!! Our goal for this fiscal year is to raise $100, 000 in order to settle the refugee families in our plan. With our 4th family here from Ukraine, we need to keep our fundraising efforts going to support our current families and resettle our expected 2022 families from Afghanistan and Ukraine!

To assist ReSET in identifying refugees that are looking to resettle in our area, we are currently working with the following international organizations that empower individuals and communities that are impacted by humanitarian crises to become self-reliant:

  • HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)
  • IRC (International Rescue Committee)
  • IRIS (Integrated Refugee & Immigrant Services)

Please join us as we change the lives of displaced families who we are welcoming into our community. 

Who we are

We are an inclusive organization that seeks to welcome participation by individuals, as well as civic and religious groups.  We believe that diversity within our participants will strengthen each of us as individual community members, as well as our organization as a whole.

What we do

ReSET will play a direct role in helping refugees – single refugees and/or refugee families – establish new homes in Northern Westchester. Our assistance relates to housing, job placement, health, education, transportation, and successful adaptation to a new country and a new way of life while holding on to the valued traditions of their country of origin’s culture.

You can volunteer with one of our many committees. More information can be found on our volunteer page. Financial donations are always welcome.
