Noted actors and Rhinebeck residents, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Hilarie Burton, have teamed up on a mini renovation of living units in Astor’s Residential Treatment Center at the Rhinebeck campus.
“We are extremely grateful for the support and initiative Hilarie and Jeffrey have shown for the upcoming RTC renovation project,” said Ed Pruitt, assistant executive director, residential programs at Astor. “The care, focus and commitment displayed is matched only by their compassion for the children and a deep sense of community.”
Since 1953, Astor has provided behavioral and education services for children and their families and now serves more than 8,000 children in the Hudson Valley and the Bronx.
In refurbishing Astor’s 57-year-old residential treatment center, Burton and Morgan are providing critical assistance for the 44-bed residence’s mini renovation, including developing finish selections and designs, securing pro-bono contractors, coordinating donated goods and otherwise contributing hands-on efforts to forward the project.
“Once these four existing wings are renovated, our endgame is to raise enough money to build an entirely new wing,” said Burton. “I’m proud that out of all of New York state, our community is where the Astor organization decided to bring these important kids.”
