In our newest chapter, Poughkeepsie members continue to actively organize low-income Poughkeepsie and Dutchess County residents dealing with issues of housing, jobs and training, and social services. They are currently exploring how to make the spending of Community Development Block Grants better benefit the community and respond to residents' needs. The CVH Poughkeepsie chapter has held forums with the Dutchess County Social Services Commissioner Robert Allers and Poughkeepsie Mayor John Tkazyik. Since 2007 they have signed up more than 1500 low-income members.
