Red Hook Responds

Shine a bright light of hope, trust and good will on people working hard together for no reason other than to lift each other up.

— Dan Budd, RHR Co-Founder


Our Helpline is live 9:00am-10:00am and to 3:00pm-5:00pm daily for the Red Hook and Rhinebeck communities. We look forward to taking your calls. Outside of these times, please leave a voicemail for a call-back during operating hours.

We are NOT an emergency response team.
If you need emergency help, please call 911.
