Summer is Coming: VISTAs in Action

Hello Middle Main! I hope everyone is enjoying the start of their summers. It’s already the middle of June and I can tell that this summer is going to fly by so quickly! There are a lot of exciting projects coming up for the VISTAs so we are busy bees working away to get our projects off the ground.

Spring into Action: One VISTA's Journey in Community Building and Engagement

Hey friends! I hope you are not too discouraged by the snow fall we've had early this April. We will have a green spring and a warm summer, I can feel it. When you become a VISTA sign up knowing that for at least one year you are placed with your host site. You think "hey that's not a lot of time," and truthfully it isn't very much time. Yet as I pass the six-month mark of my term of service I can't help but look at my orientation in Philadelphia and think how long ago that was. So much has…

Our VISTA Trip to the NeighborWorks Training Institute in DC

Hello friends!


I hope you are enjoying the unseasonably warm weather we are having this winter. My coat is still in the back of the closet, unused and lonely.  There have been many great events, meet-ups and initiatives going on here at HRH and with Middle Main and the Northern Dutchess Initiative. First, I don’t know if anyone noticed, but I have been gone for a whole week! Was I missed? Regardless, I missed you all.


Hudson River Housing is a chartered member…

Fall Festivities, Activities and Communities!

Wow! It has been quite a busy couple of weeks here lately in Middle Main. We are halfway through our two week long Dia de los Muertos Celebration and I could not be more pleased with the turnout at all the events. Yesterday was the Grand Celebration and it was a huge success, a large part of that due to the tremendous community members, business owners and organizations leaders who assisted the Middle Main team in organizing the event. The arts and crafts were fun, the music…

New to Middle Main!

Hello! It has been a full month since I began my year of service working with the Middle Main Initiative at Hudson River Housing and it has been super busy, but super fun as well! My official title is Community Engagement AmeriCorps VISTA and I will divide my time working in Poughkeepsie and Millerton. In addition to assisting my VISTAs along Middle Main I will be acting as an additional resource to existing community outreach efforts in Northeastern Dutchess.  Long commutes but a beautiful…
