Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation Donates $2,500 to Habitat for Humanity in Newburgh
WHITE PLAINS—The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation, the charitable arm of the Hudson Gateway Association of Realtors, recently presented a check for $2,500 to Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh.
Founded in 1999, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Newburgh is dedicated to providing decent, affordable housing in partnership with families in need. Reaching across religious, cultural, and racial boundaries, the organization seeks to rebuild a sense of community with the common goal of strong neighborhoods and dignity through homeownership.
Humanity of Greater Newburgh has been working to revitalize Newburgh’s neighborhoods and help local hard-working, low-income families create strength, stability, and self-reliance. The E. Parmenter Street Neighborhood, a 22-house development on what was formerly one of the most blighted blocks in Newburgh, is now a thriving community of Habitat Newburgh homeowners.
To date, 121 families earning between 30%-60% of the area median income, have partnered with Habitat Newburgh by investing sweat equity into the construction of homes, participating in required homeowner education classes, and signing a mortgage.
“Habitat for Humanity only works because of the partnerships in our community,” said Matthew Arbolino, Executive Director. “The Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation has been a tremendous partner for many years now and we greatly appreciate this support.”
Since 2014, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation has donated thousands of dollars to charities and non-profits throughout the Hudson Valley. As concerned members of the communities we work in, the Hudson Gateway Realtor Foundation participates in qualified community-based charities who serve the housing, hunger, health, happiness, and humane needs of citizens everywhere.
