Essex Junction, VT – United Ways of Vermont President Jim Curran announced today that Elizabeth Gilman has been named the organization’s new executive director. The United Ways of Vermont (UWVT) works in coordination with the state’s seven local United Ways to promote and support the equitable health, education and financial stability of everyone in Vermont. The statewide non-profit also administers Vermont 211, the free, 24/7 information and referral service that connects Vermonters with community, health and human services in their area.

“We are fortunate and excited to have Elizabeth leading United Ways of Vermont,” said UWVT President Jim Curran. “With more than 30 years of experience in human services, Elizabeth brings to the table organizational talents and unique perspectives at the very human level that will help us to better serve Vermonters.”

For more than three decades, Gilman has worked in the human services field advocating for Vermont families and individuals with a focus on mental health, substance use disorders, and homelessness.
