HOUSING RESOURCES AND GALVAN FOUNDATION ANNOUNCE COLLABORATION
HUDSON, NY, JUNE 25, 2014--Housing Resources of Columbia County, Inc., and Galvan Foundation announce their agreement to collaborate in the provision of affordable housing in the City of Hudson and Columbia County. The Housing Resources and Galvan collaboration strengthens their ability to advance shared purposes of preserving, maintaining, and increasing the supply of affordable housing in the community.
As an initial measure, Galvan representatives, including T. Eric Galloway and Henry van Ameringen, joined the Housing Resources board of directors. Mr. van Ameringen stated, "The collaboration is an opportunity to ensure Housing Resources remains a formidable provider of affordable housing at a time when low and middle income wage earners, and seniors are increasingly challenged by higher rents and fewer housing options. Stable housing is key. It is important for us to do more for this population." Mr. David Pearce, Chairman of the Board of Housing Resources said, "The board looks forward to working with Mr. Galloway and Mr. Ameringen [sic]. They will provide considerable expertise and support to Housing Resources' mission of preserving and maintaining decent, safe and affordable housing in Columbia County. In my opinion, the people of the City of Hudson and Columbia County will be well served by the collaboration of these two organizations."
