Port Chester Carver Center


The Port Chester Carver Center has been serving the community's children and families since 1943. It started as a small storefront after school program for children whose parents worked in wartime defense plants. The founders were African American parents—grassroots organizers and advocates for the minority community in Port Chester. They named the organization after the renowned African American scientist George Washington Carver, who passed away in 1943. The Carver Center grew to a small food pantry and child care program that operated out of a rented synagogue basement for over 50 years. Today our programs serve a wide range of Port Chester residents, including children, teens, adults and senior citizens.
