As we celebrate our 15th year in Red Hook:

  • RHI serves over 5,000 Red Hook residents each year – that’s over half of the public housing residents in the neighborhood.
  • 93% of our staff live in Red Hook. In the last five years, we have paid over $5M in salaries back into the community.
  • 85% of RHI participants graduate from high school. In Red Hook, there is a 46% high school graduation rate.
  • 93% of College Scholars were in good academic standing and are still working toward their two- and four-year college degrees. In Red Hook, only 29% of young adults are employed.
  • RHI has trained over 175 Local Leaders, thereby strengthening the readiness of Red Hook residents to respond to an emergency.
