What’s New:

Happy New Year!  We welcome 2021 with open arms and with a sense of renewal.  We understand that 2020 was a rough year for us all.  As a collective, we were challenged in ways unlike ever before. Day in and day out, communities were struggling to build themselves up, everyday people were struggling with family issues, mental challenges, and addictions. This month to help remedy what we lost and what we have gained, we are using the word HOPE.   

Let me ask you, what is that one thing that inspires you? What is that one thing that no matter the circumstances will get you through the day?.  Sometimes it is the hope for a better day, sometimes it is faith, and sometimes it is just lyrics to a song.  A great musical artist wrote “Life is a journey, not a destination. There are no mistakes, just chances we’ve taken. Lay down your regrets ’cause all we have is now”.  What gives us hope is that we know there are people standing beside us to help us up when we are down, to lend a hand when we need to rebuild, and to listen when we need to talk.   

The Mid-Hudson Problem Gambling Resource Center wants to help provide that hope.  We will continue to provide hope in our region through the following: 

  • Provide more education to the communities about problem gambling and help reduce the stigma about addiction. 
  • Continue to connect those affected or struggling with problem gambling to the best care our region offers.  
  • Support our community partners in their efforts to build and sustain healthy communities 
  • Use our collective voices to bring care, concern, positivity and hope with our new podcast, coming soon!     

Hope is only a phone call away.  If you know any person struggling or affected by problem gambling, please call or text us at 914-215-6440 or email us at Mid-HudsonPGRC@NYProblemGambling.org.
