Hudson Guild Talks - April 2022 Newsletter

April 6, 2022 | by hgadmin


Meet Charlene!


Charlene is the Human Resources Coordinator here at Hudson Guild and has been for almost four years now. Throughout those years she has experienced the growth and evolution of the Human Resources department. During the peak of the pandemic in 2020, Charlene and the team were able to hire 40 new employees at Hudson Guild! She loves to be a part of an organization that is so involved in the community and where everyone involved cares so deeply about coming together to help all Hudson Guild participants.

Charlene first started at Hudson Guild as a HR Assistant and has since greatly contributed to helping Hudson Guild adapt to current times. She’s grateful that Hudson Guild has allowed her to dive into different initiatives to explore her strengths and work towards her goals. Charlene would love to someday travel to the South of France!

Thank You Turner Construction Company!


Thank you Turner Construction Company for providing our 2nd & 3rd graders with the STEAM program at Salvadori Center! Exposing children to science, technology, engineering, arts, & math programs early on is so important in increasing critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The students here are focusing on the engineering involved in building bridges!

Mental Health Tip of the Month

Stress is a physical, mental, or emotional response to the demands of daily life. While stress can feel uncomfortable, it is a normal human reaction. April is Stress Awareness Month and our Mental Health Services department wanted to share a few tips on how to deal with stress.

If you are struggling please reach out to a trusted person, doctor, mental health professional, or to Hudson Guild Mental Health Clinic at (212) 760-9822.
