Welcome to the home of Groundwork Hudson Valley. Our mission is to help residents reclaim and revitalize communities with great need through on-the-ground initiatives that provide hope and empowerment. We focus on neighborhoods with crumbling parks, abandoned houses, vacant lots, and polluted waterways, further blighted by crime, health, and employment issues.
Turning these neighborhoods around means developing initiatives that cut across economic, social, and environmental issues. Though diverse, our work helps achieve our goal. We create real change by collaborating with local residents on projects that:
- Improve their neighborhood’s physical landscape
- Encourage healthy and sustainable lifestyles
- Organize green job training programs
- Educate young people to be tomorrow’s environmental stewards
These efforts help neighborhoods gain a renewed sense of place, pride…and promise.
