Committed to building a stronger and healthier Lamoille County community.
Most of us are able to lead a good life because we were taught the necessary life skills to be successful. But for some, there are pieces of their life that are missing - family support, financial security, stable housing, job skills - just to name a few. Imagine what it would be like if you never learned these skills? Without someone providing you with some guidance along the way, your chances of leading a stable life would be unlikely.
Our United Way works one-on-one with individuals and families to get to the root cause of what has been keeping them from being successful. Whether it's job skills to secure full-time employment, financial training to teach someone how to live within their means or helping them reach their educational goals, we are able to make a significant difference in their lives. One of the people we recently worked with summed it up best when they said, "You completely changed my life."
We all want the same things for our neighbors:
Optimal physical and mental health
Our children to enter school ready to succeed
Our families to achieve financial stability and independence.
Our approach allows us to help people put the pieces of their life back together and guide them down a path of self-sufficiency. We hope you will join us in our efforts by supporting our work. If you would like to know more, please give me a call at 888-3252.
