What’s New:

October 12th is Indigenous Peoples Day.  To honor Indigenous People, we would like to remember their traditions and ways of being care takers of the land.  We believe at the Mid-Hudson Problem Gambling Resource Center that our mission is to help.  Being a caretaker is represented in the way we connect people who are struggling or affected to services; how we provide education about problem gambling to the region; and how we connect with other organizations to help build a healthier and stronger community.  

We are grateful to be able to attend our community coalitions meetings. Each time they meet members of the community are given space to recognize and reflect on how they are feeling in the present moment. Its moments like these that tells the person next to you that I see you and the struggles they may be going through. This kind of care and concern is what keeps a community surviving and thriving.   

As care takers of this region and within the problem gambling world, we wanted to let you know we are here for you. We are here to listen, to connect, to journey with you in recovery.   

We take care of the future best by taking care of the present now ~Jon Kabat-Zinn
