View our history!

In the early 1980s, former Dutchess County Executive Lucille Pattison convened a task force to investigate the scale of the issue of homelessness in Dutchess County and identify possible solutions.  One conclusion drawn by the Task Force was that there was a need for emergency shelter in the area that was combined with support and life skills training to assist families in addressing their immediate needs and in transitioning to more stable, permanent housing.

As we expanded our residential programming for the homeless, we developed expertise in developing, rehabilitating, and managing our own facilities.  This led us to branch out into housing development, coupled with the recognition that decent, affordable housing opportunities were needed in the community so that individuals and families could transition out of homelessness or avoid it entirely.
