Community Service Outreach Program

See How Wartburg Helps the Community

Wartburg gives back to the Westchester, NY, community through Wartburg Cares!, a program that coordinates all of our outreach activities to ensure they align with our mission and goals. These activities include educational and charitable events, service, health- or advocacy-related programs, outreach, and relationship-building.
