Demolition Begins on Old Jawonio Building in New City

Demolition began yesterday of the old Jawonio campus building in New City that’s now being replaced. Built in 1958, the building was taken apart slowly to make room for parking to support a new building that’s already in operation on the 16-acre site off Little Tor Road. Jawonio Executive Director and CEO Randi Rios-Castro says the old building is as much of an inspiration now as it was then…

Jawonio was first established nearly 75 years ago, and Immediate Past CEO Jill Warner says the values and community spirit that put the building up brick-by-brick in 1958 still exist today…

Jawonio, which provides services for those with developmental disabilities, behavioral health challenges, and chronic medical conditions, has raised about seven million of their ten-million-dollar goal to complete the new building construction project. Jawonio has 900 staffers in Rockland and Westchester supporting 3,000 children, adults and families.
