"I like it here, I love it here! It’s the best place in the whole world!” -Bill Rosecan, Camphill Hudson Resident.
A visitor need only step inside one of the Camphill Hudson residences to experience a sense of warmth and home. In our Allen Street residences meals are shared around a communal table, starting with a lit candle, a taking of hands, and a grace. Living in extended-family type households, resident co-workers and their children create home together with adults with developmental disabilities. Each person contributes to the home life to the best of their ability. This fosters warm feelings of both independence and interdependence.
In our semi-independent residences you will find that same sense of warmth and home, with an expanded feeling of individual expression and flexibility. You may will find individuals working side by side to cook a meal, doing household chores or perhaps playing a board game. They may be planning their meals for the week, putting together their social schedule or even paying their bills and managing their finances. For those who may be seeking just a little bit more independence while still seeking the interdependence of a community - these residences are a perfect fit.
Camphill Hudson residents develop a deep caring for one another and celebrate birthdays, seasonal festivals and other important occasions together. While residents go out to work during the week, evenings and weekends are a time for housekeeping, social outings, and worship taking in all that the city of Hudson has to offer.
Hudson is a thriving and diverse small city, and Camphill Hudson residents actively participate in its vibrant cultural life. They enjoy participating in the many festivals hosted at the riverfront, watching the myriad parades that march down Warren Street, and attending plays, concerts and talks at any one of several local performance spaces.
Camphill Hudson residents also make their own contributions to the cultural life of Hudson. Each year Camphill Hudson pulls together members of the local community to produce the Oberufer Shepherds Play at Christmas-time. The play is performed in the local Presbyterian Church, where several Camphill Hudson residents are congregants.
