HAYC3 is many things to many people, but in short we are a rural revival and community arts organization based in Hoosick Falls, New York.
Our goal is to restore rural sustainability and drive economic development through art, culture, education, and health. We work toward these goals through being a community incubator, an art center, and a place of opportunity.
We are the community hub driving rural development. We are here to help businesses in their incubation stage of existence. We currently have provided space and support for three startup businesses in the HAYC3 Armory. We have space and opportunities for others, including a certified kitchen available for startups.
Our children are our future; we have programs to enrich the youth of our community, building a new generation of responsible citizens who have a sense of community. Through the HAYC3 youth center, we provide a safe place for kids to learn teamwork, create art, and to grow as human beings.
Our Common Cause is Our Community. HAYC3 strives to build and unite Hoosick through a variety of programs, services, and initiatives. Through community-inspired and driven programs, we make it possible for people of all ages — your neighbors — to engage in enriching activities that build their minds, bodies, spirits, and, most importantly, our community.
