CVH transformed itself from a one-city, one-issue organization into a multi-chapter, multi-issue organization after a strategic planning process in 2014. A combination of things led us to this decision, but mainly a recognition that many changes that we sought were governed by state policy and we needed more reach to be able to have impact.
We now have chapters in four different parts of the state - New York City (covering all 5 boroughs, with deeper "hubs" in particular areas) and the Hudson Valley, including Westchester, Orange and Dutchess Counties. We build our power, however, by not only acting as hubs and chapters independently, but also by bringing together our members from across the entire region, and focusing collectively on the state when appropriate. We are able to come together across the state for leadership development opportunities as well as for campaign opportunities that affect us all.

Hello CVH Extended Family,
After almost 16 years at Community Voices Heard (CVH), I have decided that it’s time to pass the torch and allow for new leadership at the organization….and a new chapter in my own life as well.
Dear Community Voices Heard Members and Friends,
The Board of Directors of Community Voices Heard and CVH Power, want to thank you for all you do to make CVH a powerful force for low-income people across New York State.
