Many of our Hudson Valley towns offer community service groups. Organizations that work to enhance and support a variety of people. They exist in order for us to take advantage of their hard work. They also count on us to be part of their solution.

The New Paltz Community Wellness is one of the organizations in Ulster County that is working hard in the New Paltz area to help support youth, adults, and families. One of the programs they are known for is their free monthly Narcan training which they wrapped up in May.
