In Memory of Fay Chew Matsuda

Fay Chew Matsuda worked at Hamilton-Madison House for a cumulative of 17 years, coming back as the director at our City Hall Senior Center. During Fay’s time at Hamilton-Madison House, she always showed her dedication to helping others without expecting anything in return. She will be greatly missed by our staff and our senior members. If you haven't seen it yet, or you want to learn more about Fay, check out this article about Fay published in the New York Times!

In memory of Fay Chew Matsuda, her loving daughter Amy and her beloved husband Karl, set up a "GoFundMe" page with all proceeds going to Hamilton-Madison House which has raised more than $9,000. We miss our colleague and friend Fay, and are very appreciative that they thought of HMH during this time. We’d like to thank her family, friends and colleagues for all the donations in Fay's memory. If you would still like to make a donation, please click this link:
