Happy New Year! We made it through one week! Thank you for spending your new year getting in touch with what’s going on in the Hudson Valley. I hope you’ve had a terrific holiday season, and as we settle back into real life, I hope you’ll be able to find many things to celebrate this year.

This week’s guest is Alethea Taylor, executive director of Hour Children. Hour Children is a leading provider of services to incarcerated and formerly incarcerated women in New York State. We discuss their 360 wrap-around service, which offers mentoring, resources, and more for mothers who are incarcerated and their children. We also discuss Adverse Childhood Experiences and the importance of building a strong community.

We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Alethea and myself here on In Touch.


This has been this week’s edition of IN TOUCH, the public affairs and issues program that runs across Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley radio stations. We want to give a big thank you to Alethea Taylor. To learn more about Hour Children, visit hourchildren.org. Of course, all links and information can be found in the description of this episode.
