ALBION – The hard work and dedication of the team at Community Action of Orleans & Genesee recognized this week by the New York State Department of State.

In a certificate of recognition issued as part of Community Action Month, Secretary of State Robert Rodriguez wrote: “Today we recognize and express our gratitude to Community Action of Orleans and Genesee, Inc, under the leadership of Renee Hungerford, Executive Director, for their extraordinary efforts and service to the State of New York and their contributions to the ongoing efforts and service to the State of New York and their contributions to the ongoing efforts to strengthen and enhance the success of the community action network.”

Hungerford joined the Community Action in 2020. Since taking the reins as CEO, she has worked tirelessly to identify the needs of residents in the two counties and to pave to new paths that meet those needs close to home.

Most recently, Hungerford has been the driving force that launched Community Action’s recently announced “Axis of Care” program, which will increase access to healthcare for homeless and housing insecure families across the county.

That will be based out of the Eastern Orleans Community Center in Holley as a telehealth hub to access healthcare services.
