She died in July. During the event, agency officials will announce the renaming of the Dutchess County Coalition for the Homeless emergency overnight shelter as Webster House, the Gail V. Webster Memorial Shelter for the Homeless. Hudson River Housing develops and manages affordable housing in Dutchess County.
