Guest speaker Ted Houghton, newly appointed Executive Deputy Commissioner of NYS Homes & Community Renewal (NYS HCR), delivers the keynote address entitled supportive housing is the solution. While executive director of Supportive Housing Network of NY (SHNNY) for eight years, Houghton substantially increased production of supportive housing in New York. In 2012, he helped make supportive housing a pillar of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Medicaid Redesign Team initiative and continues to serve on that team. Considered a pioneer of the housing-as-healthcare concept, he brings fresh energy to statewide housing agendas. Read more about Ted and his contributions to New York’s supportive housing agenda.
We’re also honoring Kelly McMullen, Director of Ulster County Office for the Aging, with this year’s 2014 Community Partner Award. Kelly’s contributions to the Ulster County mental health and aging populations is noteworthy. And her invaluable input towards RUPCO’s recent NYS grant applications helped us secure over $500,000 in funding.
