A benefit for the Center for Prevention of Child Abuse takes place at The Chance in Poughkeepsie this June.

CPCA The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse is based out of Poughkeepsie and is a private non-profit that has been dedicated to the reduction of child maltreatment since 1973. Their mission is to prevent child abuse in the Mid-Hudson Valley. Each year, they reach over 15,000 children and adults through prevention programming, educational services and support services, all focused on stopping the cycle of child abuse. Funding is received from a variety of public and private sources, but they rely on individual and corporate donations for the bulk of their unrestricted support.

1,000 cases of child abuse are reported each year in Dutchess County, 5 times as many go unreported. Donate today here to protect children from child abuse.

Having lived in the Hudson Valley my entire life, I'm old enough to remember numerous businesses, stores and markets that have come and gone over the years. So with that in mind, figured why not talk about some of the stores that are the most missed here in the Hudson Valley.
