We are pleased to announce that Legal Services of the Hudson Valley’s (LSHV) annual report is available to view online at www.lshv.org/. Thank you for your continued support and dedication to our mission.
2019 was a very successful year with new contracts and projects being funded throughout our region. The report highlights two in particular: our Pink Project providing critical services to breast cancer patients and survivors; and our Kinship Grant which gives us an opportunity to support those family members who have stepped up to take in a child who otherwise would wind up in foster care.
It is remarkable that such a successful year would be followed by months of uncertainty and change. COVID-19 gave us a host of unprecedented challenges to overcome and we are proud to say that everyone involved with LSHV faced these head on and pivoted quickly to a remote work environment, something completely outside of our comfort zone. We don’t know what the next year will bring for us, our clients, funders, donors and community partners but we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing a wide array of holistic legal programs and services. We are grateful for the dedication of those who believe in our mission and continue to stand up for the right to equal access to justice.
Our hope for a future where justice is accessible to everyone continues to be our sole purpose. We are preparing for an even greater need for our services over the coming year and know that our staff are committed to help as many seniors, families, veterans, domestic violence victims and survivors as possible.
In the meantime, we continue to look for cost savings wherever we can so that the majority of our funding can go to serving those in need. This year, with everyone increasing the amount of time they spend online, seemed to be the perfect opportunity to move to a more environmentally-friendly and cost-conscious, online annual report.
