SHORE/ICARE (Sheltering the Homeless Is Our Responsibility/Interfaith Council for Affordable Residence, Inc.) an all-volunteer, interfaith, not-for-profit housing organization in central Westchester County, NY. SHORE/ICARE began in 1985 when a half-dozen churches and temples joined forces and opened their doors to provide overnight shelter for nineteen single, homeless adults. In the years since, SHORE/ICARE has expanded its mission to include other housing-related programs, primarily permanent, affordable rental homes for homeless families. SHORE/ICARE constructed 14 new affordable units in White Plains for 7 first-time homeowners and 7 formerly homeless families. In 2010 SHORE/ICARE completed the construction of a new 2-family home in Ardsley, NY. Today, SHORE/ICARE continues to provide management and support services to the 18 families who live in its housing units across White Plains, Ardsley, Sleepy Hollow, as well as Yonkers, while also seeking out new opportunities to develop even more affordable homes and support even more families.
