Adie Shore, HVCS’ new Director of CQI, Data and Grants Management

Hudson Valley Community Services announced today that Adie Shore, a resident of Scarsdale, will lead a new department which will house quality improvement, data services and grant management. Shore comes to the agency from a long freelance career as a grant writer. She worked previously for the Women’s Enterprise Development Center and the YWCA.

 She holds a BS in Math from Long Island University, an MS in Operational Research from the New York Polytechnic Institute and an MA in Finance from Columbia Business School. After college she worked in the banking sector, and began volunteering for non-profits while raising her family. She then decided to devote her skills and interests to help non-profits succeed. She holds a National Grants Professional certification.

 HVCS reorganized two small administrative teams which oversee continued quality improvement and data services into one department, and expanded the responsibilities of its grant writer position to run the new department. Shore supervises four employees.

 “I’m happy to be working for an organization that believes that everyone has the right to a better quality of life.  This is evidenced by HVCS’ commitment to the clients they serve, and the programs they provide,” Shore said. “I’m impressed with HVCS’ commitment to quality improvement and data integrity.” She aims to maintain these high standards while securing funds to sustain existing programs and meet the agency’s future funding needs.

 Andrea Straus, Executive Director, congratulated Shore on her new position. “We are delighted to have Adie Shore on board at HVCS. Her arrival is the culmination of executive management’s dream of finding a director who can handle our multiple grant and foundation applications and licensing inquiries. This role also entails managing the increasingly complicated technology for funding application submissions, and integrates our grants, data and CQI functions. She is definitely the right person to do this, and has already begun to lead us in new ventures.”


Meet Toya Bost-Utsey, HVCS’ New Human Resources Director

Toya Bost-UtseyHudson Valley Community Services announced today that Toya Bost-Utsey is the new Director of Human Resources at the local non-profit organization. She supervises two employees.

Bost-Utsey holds a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Management from Mercy College. She has spent much of her career thus far in human resources at financial institutions, including Hudson Valley Bank in Tuckahoe.

Though her first job after graduation was as a legal secretary, she came to the human resources field by accident. Her first job in human resources was at Cablevision. She is a member of the Society of Human Resources Management (SHRM).

Originally from the Bronx, she is now a resident of Croton-on-Hudson.

“I am thrilled to work for such an energetic, welcoming organization,” Bost-Utsey said. She looks forward to working cohesively with all departments. She prides herself on embracing technology to update and streamline the Human Resources department.

“We are fortunate to have Toya Bost-Utsey join our senior management team and to fill an essential role at HVCS,” said Andrea Straus, Executive Director. “Her predecessor had been with us for sixteen years, so it was no small accomplishment to learn the workings of our organization in a very short period of time right when we transitioned to a new health insurance plan, our first switch in decades. I know she will also easily handle multiple personnel, staff training, and policy issues.”
