The West Hempstead Community Support Association (WHCSA) began as the West Hempstead Civic Association in 1995 to start a revitalization campaign in our community.
In early 2007, the Civic Association applied for and received IRS 501 (c)(3) recognition, with the stipulation that the organization change its name. At that time the name was changed to the West Hempstead Community Support Association, Inc.
As a 501 (c)(3) organization, the WHCSA is eligible to apply for private and public grants. In addition, contributions made to the WHCSA by individuals are tax deductible.
With the help of the Executive Board and other volunteers, many improvements have been made in our community and, perhaps more importantly, destructive initiatives have been stopped. Today we have the support of over 800 member households and businesses.
We always are looking for active members to help our community. We need people to serve on committees and we need to hear from everyone about what you would like to see improved in West Hempstead. Please fill out the form on the CONTACT page, learn about some VOLUNTEER opportunities, and please give us FEEDBACK on any or all of the activities of WHCSA.
