Make a House a Home

We are incredibly grateful for the amazing success of our Make a House a Home. This initiative is a testament to the power of community, bringing together our team members and fellow businesses across the Hudson Valley. This collaborative effort has transformed the outdoor spaces of Residential Programs, exceeding all expectations, of botanical abundance.

At In Flight, Inc., we are dedicated to empowering individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Our Residential Programs play a crucial role in this mission, providing a supportive group home environment where residents can learn vital household skills and enjoy a high quality of life. However, the outdoor areas of our residences had long needed attention. Henceforth, by enhancing these spaces, we aimed to create welcoming environments where our residents could relax, socialize, and find joy in gardening.

We are immensely grateful to our donors, including Adam’s Fairacre Farms, Callander’s Nursery & Landscaping, Lowe’s, The New Corn Crib Greenhouse, and Northern Dutchess Botanical Gardens. Their donations of flowers, plants, and gardening supplies were instrumental in the success of this project. Additionally, thank you Janet Del Rosario, a dedicated donor and active Red Hook community member, for her donation of supplies.


Equestrian Therapy with Breezy Lawn Farms

In Flight’s Catskill Day Habilitation Program is thrilled to announce a new collaboration with Breezy Lawn Farms to provide Equestrian Therapy for our individuals. This exciting initiative, made possible by a generous grant from the Catskill Community Center, began on June 10th and will continue until the onset of winter weather.

Our Catskill Day Habilitation participants have already had a couple of fantastic sessions at Breezy Lawn Farms. On the first day, participants were introduced to the horses and engaged in a fun scavenger hunt. They learned the basics of horse care, including feeding and grooming. The highlight was giving treats to the horses and meeting most of the stable residents. Excitement filled the day as everyone began to form bonds with these gentle animals.


Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy Is Cornhole for a Cause Presenting Sponsor!

We are beyond grateful to announce that Hudson Regional Long-Term Care Pharmacy is the Presenting Sponsor for our 3rd Annual Cornhole for a Cause! Their generous support and partnership are crucial in making this year’s fundraiser tournament possible. Moreover, without their commitment, this event, which plays a vital role in supporting our mission at In Flight, would not be able to achieve the same level of success.

Angelo Angerame, Chief Executive Officer of Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy, has been a strategic ally to In Flight. The continuous efforts, for not only In Flight’s programming, but the entire Hudson Valley Community has been instrumental in supporting individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

We encourage you to learn more about Hudson Regional LTC Pharmacy’s incredible work and their impact on the community here. Cornhole for a Cause would not be possible without the help of Angelo the Hudson Regional Long-Term Care Pharmacy team. We are beyond grateful for their outstanding support and for being a champion of change. Together, we are truly making a difference in the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Outstanding Team Member of the Month!

Natasha Morgan – Life Skills Counselor

Natasha Morgan, Life Skills Counselor in our I-SAIL Academy, is a wonderful asset to In Flight. Although she mainly works at our Catskill I-SAIL location, Natasha is everywhere lending her skills and compassion to our folks.


Flag Day Parade – Celebrating Community Spirit

In Flight had the privilege of participating in the Hudson Flag Day Parade for the second year in a row. It was a day filled with joy, community spirit, and patriotic pride as we joined our neighbors to celebrate this cherished tradition.

Building on the excitement from last year, we decided to make our presence even more special. For the first time, In Flight had a float in the parade! The float was beautifully decorated with balloons, flags, banners, and other patriotic decorations. Signs, decorated by our Ghent Day Habilitation Program, were held by our participants on the float and marching alongside.









Help us make every person we support’s birthday special by making a donation to In Flight in honor of them.

In Flight is their home with people they consider family and friends. By donating today in honor of them, we can continue to make their special day as important as any family would.

Every Birthday Tribute donation will be highlighted in the newsletter each month.
