Event Details

Join Hudson River Housing on Friday, November 6th from 5-7pm for an evening of fellowship as we raise funds and awareness to support those in our community who are confronting homelessness as we face the long winter ahead. 


This year we’re offering two options for your participation: in-person* and virtual. With both options, we’re offering the opportunity to learn more deeply about the experience of homelessness, and how our community is working together to prevent and end it.


Whether you join us in-person or from home, you will have the opportunity to:

  • View the debut of our “Everyone Deserves a Door” exhibit, a moving assemblage of stories and artwork produced by Hudson River Housing residents. 

  • View an excerpt from a forthcoming documentary on homelessness in Poughkeepsie filmed and produced in coordination with Hudson River Housing by award winning filmmaker Lowell Handler. In-person guests will be treated to a Q&A with staff and the filmmaker after the viewing.

  • Join the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Lab for a storytelling performance rooted in real experiences of homelessness.

  • Sign up for volunteer opportunities with PPE4ALL, a student-led grassroots organization operating out of the Poughkeepsie Trolley Barn that is producing life-saving PPE for essential workers across the US.

  • Visit the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory to learn about the incredible volunteer effort that provides 100+ meals every night of the year for the homeless in our community (and has for decades), and send your words of compassion with a personal note to go with the meal being packed up on site for delivery to the homeless shelter.

  • In-person guests will be treated to an individually-portioned light dinner. Virtual attendees can join in with access to recipes provided by our caterer, Flores Food Truck, as well as a voucher to Flores Food Truck for use at a future date. 


It takes compassion, dedication, and community to keep people safe, housed, and supported, during a pandemic and all the time. Amidst all our world is experiencing, this is good, important work that we can connect to and play a role in, and which reinforces our gratitude for all that we have to give. 


We hope you will join us - in-person* or from home - for what promises to be a unique and meaningful experience. 


*In-person guests will be limited to fifty individuals. Social distancing and face masks will be enforced. The Trolley Barn offers a very large indoor space that has a normal maximum capacity of 400, In addition, outdoor space and the Poughkeepsie Underwear Factory will be part of the event, allowing guests to spread out.
