Support Safe Harbors of the Hudson!
The Safe Harbors project integrates many things … housing, visual and performing arts, urban green space, community building, economic development and is a model for urban revitalization.
We have been working over the past couple of years to embrace the unique strengths of our multi-faceted organization. We merged the Ritz Theater Board and the Safe Harbors board to create one super board, focused on the health of the entire project, we created a new logo to strengthen our brand as one organization with tremendous depth, breadth and impact.
Supporters of Safe Harbors play a vital role in our ability to provide housing for our most vulnerable neighbors; to bring accessible and affordable world class visual and performing arts to our community; to create a cultural and social hub in our city center, to attract businesses to our main street and to contribute to the revitalization of our downtown.
Safe Harbors Green
Always growing, stretching and finding ways to increase our impact, engage our community and strengthen our mission, Safe Harbors of the Hudson made the bold decision earlier this year to purchase the long vacant lot adjacent to our project.
With a generous lead gift, Safe Harbors was able to secure a commercial loan and this pivotal property in the center of Newburgh’s downtown. Our plan is to develop the vacant land into a fully accessible, innovative urban park, a cultural and social hub that will allow us to enhance our programming, create green space, facilitate social activity, improve public safety and spur economic growth.
The park design optimizes the sites natural resources while incorporating the most innovative of green and sustainable technology – native plantings, rainwater gardens, solar lighting and full ADA accessibility in an inviting and well-designed space.
A park in our downtown will create place; a place to strengthen connections among people and the community they share. A place that encourages walk-ability, connectivity and accessibility. An animated gathering place where people can meet, recreate and exchange ideas. A place for farmers markets, gardens, open air performances, festivals, public art and quiet spots to sit and contemplate.
Please support the Safe Harbors Green project and partner with us in this exciting chapter for Safe Harbors and the further revitalization of our City!
