TD Bank, through the TD Charitable Foundation, recently donated a total of $5,000 to Safe Harbors of the Hudson in Orange County, as part of the bank’s commitment to giving back to the community.
Safe Harbors of the Hudson is dedicated to transforming lives and building communities through housing and the arts in the City of Newburgh. Safe Harbors’ supportive housing project, The Cornerstone Residence, was established in 2002 inside the former Hotel Newburgh. This infamous, run-down welfare hotel was transformed into attractive, well-designed supportive housing. The Cornerstone, named the Supportive Housing Network of New York State’s “Residence of the Year” in 2007, consists of 128 apartments; 116 are supportive housing units and 12 are artist lofts. The apartments provide housing for a mixed tenancy of single adults, including the formerly homeless, veterans, those living with a mental health diagnosis and/or physical disability, artists and other adults who need safe, affordable housing. Safe Harbors will use the funds from the TD Charitable Foundation to support many successful and innovative educational programming, such as our GED Program, we provide at no cost for our tenants of The Cornerstone as well as our community.
A staunch commitment to active involvement in the local community is a vital element of the TD Bank philosophy. TD Bank, America’s Most Convenient Bank® and the TD Charitable Foundation provide financial and other support to affordable housing initiatives, financial literacy and education and the environment, many of which focus on improving the welfare of children and families.
