Vermont 211's Database is Always Growing
Did you know that Vermont 211 is constantly researching and looking for new agencies and programs to add to our already robust database? From reading news articles and monthly agency newsletters, to scouring social media and agency websites for posts about newly created resources, to gleaning information from community and partner meetings, to word-of-mouth information from callers and clients, Vermont 211’s research roots grow far and wide, and produce resource “fruits” the entire community can benefit from.
Here is just a small sample of the results our thorough and talented Resource Team has produced in the last few months:
StrongHearts Native Hotline: a non-profit organization that offers a culturally appropriate, anonymous, and confidential help line dedicated to Native American survivors of domestic violence and concerned family members and friends. You can find this on our website under the search term Domestic Violence Hotlines*Native American Community.
Sleep in Heavenly Peace: a national non-profit organization dedicated to improving children’s physical, emotional, and mental health by building, assembling, and delivering beds to children and families in need. You can find this on our website under the search term Household Goods*Children.
Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library: a private non-profit organization that provides a free book monthly to children ages zero to five through local community partners. You can find this on our website under the search terms Book Distribution Programs and Early Literacy Development Programs.
