What’s New:

The Mid-Hudson PGRC had the opportunity to learn more about the resources in the region and to participate in community events in the last two weeks.

We would like to thank the Warwick community in Orange County for inviting us to participate and table at their annual Break the Stigma Walk, as well as be a presenter for their Student Youth Leadership Program.  It was a great opportunity for the Mid-Hudson team to educate and raise awareness about problem gambling.

We thank the Healthy Ulster County for welcoming us into their Healthy Ulster Council meeting. We were able to connect with the providers in the community, who are doing a great job in the field of prevention and treatment.  We look forward to learning more about the resources and partnering any way we can.

Thank you to Abilities First in Dutchess County for meeting with us.  It was a pleasure to be able to learn about all the services they provide to those who are developmentally challenged with substance use addictions.  We are grateful for the opportunity to speak to their staff about problem gambling.

Lastly, we appreciate People’s United Bank for highlighting our program as their monthly business spotlight.  The People’s United Bank highlights organizations within the community each month, and we are honored that we were featured so that we can continue to spread awareness about what problem gambling is and the treatment available.

It continues to be an absolute pleasure connecting, learning, and being among a region that is doing a great job to serve the people in their community.  As we continue to meet and learn about the various organizations in the Mid-Hudson region, we are reminded of the great job that all of these organizations are doing to serve the people in their communities. We are here to learn and grow together and we are thankful that we are able to support these organizations.
