to secure and retain housing in Rutland County, Vermont.

This GivingTuesday, the Homeless Prevention Center hopes to raise $3,750 to assist homeless families in Rutland County.


That’s enough to provide: a Security Deposit to help get a family into housing ($1,000); Back Rent so another family can avoid eviction and homelessness ($2,100); and Essentials--like a new bed--for someone going from shelter to their own home ($650).

Thank You for your commitment to ending homelessness one person and one family at a time. We could not do this without You!
