Hector was separated from his parents at a young age, and had a rough childhood. He spent time in prison, was homeless for a period, and suffered from substance abuse. At age 44, Hector decided to start over. He was hired by Hudson River Housing first for a position at Webster House Shelter, and then eventually promoted to a supervisory role. A few years ago Hector and his wife began the process of buying their first home, a dream he never thought would be possible to achieve. With assistance from Hudson River Housing’s NeighborWorks HomeOwnership Center of Dutchess County, they were able to purchase a beautiful 3 bedroom duplex home in the City of Poughkeepsie.
“I’ll tell you, Hudson River Housing gave me a house. I was homeless – A house. I am forever grateful.”
