On Wednesday, June 8, Housing Assistance Program of Essex County (HAPEC) celebrated NeighborWorks Week with the residents of Lee House apartments in Port Henry. HAPEC staff delivered four wicker chairs for Lee House residents and their guests to enjoy on the front porch. They spruced up the porch and yard and enjoyed a barbeque lunch. Decker’s Flats Greenhouse provided the flowers.

HAPEC has been a chartered member of the NeighborWorks network since 2003. NeighborWorks is an affiliation of nearly 250 nonprofit organizations located in every state, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico.

“This week is about celebrating and recognizing that together we can build resilient and strong communities,” said Bruce Misarski, Executive Director of HAPEC. “We are proud to have NeighborWorks as our national partner. Their grants, trainings, learning opportunities, and partnerships improve our ability to provide quality, affordable housing for our community members.”
