Fearless! Hudson Valley Inc.
"Every person deserves a right to feel safe in their home. When Fearless! Hudson Valley needed a bridge loan to hold the property while other funding fell into place, we were eager to help ensure that this refuge stayed on track." -Kim Jacobs, President & CEO of CCNY.
Formerly known as Safe Homes of Orange County, Fearless! Hudson Valley is one of the only places of refuge for domestic violence victims and human trafficking victims and their children in Orange County. With a $400,000 bridge acquisition loan, they acquired a twenty-unit property in Newburgh to develop and operate an emergency shelter for women and families in crisis.
Fearless! Hudson Valley's mission is to build an informed, just, and accountable society so that all people can experience supportive and safe relationships free from abuse, exploitation, and oppression. They do this through education, prevention, advocacy, and providing comprehensive services, including shelter. In 2019, Safe Homes of Orange County helped over 4,000 people. We are honored to be part of helping them achieve their mission in Orange County.
