POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. -- Hudson River Housing hosted their annual luncheon at the Italian Center on Thursday, March 3.

“We're working upstream to address the root causes of homelessness and poverty,' said Executive Director Sean Robin.

He outlined his plans for the upcoming year.

Sabrina Jaar Marzouka, the Dutchess County Commissioner of Community and Family Services, provided feature remarks on partnership and collaboration-driven approaches to addressing area homelessness.

Resident Lawrence Cooper shared a story about going from being a homeless veteran to becoming a community leader with the support of Hudson River Housing.

“Hudson River Housing has their hand in this; they have their hand in that," said Cooper. "They have provided me with shelter, given me job leads, they’re giving me opportunities.”

More than 140 people attended the luncheon.
