HDF remembers Melvina Peters, a counselor at HDF for over 15 years and a pillar of the Stamford community.

We will miss her passion for justice, her sense of humor, and her tremendous strength of character. She is remembered by many.

President & CEO Joan Carty says: “We will always cherish Melvina’s devotion to her clients, her commitment to social justice and the high esteem in which she was held in Stamford, her home town.”

HDF Board Member Phil McKain writes: “This is very sad news and loss to the community. Melvina was a dedicated warrior for the low income residents of this region. I will miss her and her spirit.”
