Taking on the Challenges of Poverty Dutchess Outreach Makes an Impact
“To ensure the effectiveness of Dutchess Outreach as it moves into the future, the nonprofit is doing its best to communicate with similar, nearby organizations to find solutions to shared problems. “One of the things we have started to do more of is think about why our clients are in the situation they are in and examine the factors that exist in our community which contribute to the need for services,” says Salem. “There is deep-seated poverty that exists in small urban communities such as in the city of Newburgh, parts of the city of Kingston, and even in the city of Beacon. We want to help create solutions that can be replicated and shared by working with all of our community partners. There has been some good work done over the years, so we’re trying to capitalize on that and push it forward.”
Dutchess Outreach, a Poughkeepsie-based organization that addresses food insecurity among other things, has partnered with the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York to distribute fresh fruits and vegetables to the community at no charge.
According to Dutchess Outreach Development Associate Sarah Salem, 26.8 percent of Poughkeepsie suffers from food insecurity which translates to one out of every four houses in the area. ”
