Community Partners

There is no easy way to define “partnership.” United Way of Northwest Vermont brings together businesses, government, foundations and nonprofits to do the work that none of us could do alone. We define partnership in many ways, because we work in many ways to tackle our community’s challenges. Through our partnerships, we do our best work.

Partner highlights:

 

chittenden county opioid alliance (CCOA)

CCOA was formed in 2016 as a systemic response to Chittenden County’s opioid epidemic, working alongside United Way of Northwest Vermont and bringing together other nonprofits, medical providers, business leaders, law enforcement and government to turn the tide on the opioid crisis.

Chittenden County Homeless Alliance (CCHA)

Housing is a basic need for everyone. That’s why United Way of Northwest Vermont is working with partners all across the community to prevent homelessness and improve the complicated systems that are designed to help but can sometimes keep people from getting what they need.

Featured partner: champlain valley office of economic opportunity (CVOEO)

What could you do with an extra $270? For many Vermont workers, that’s not money they have to spare for tax preparation services. With a grant from North Country Federal Credit Union, we’re partnering with CVOEO to provide free mobile tax prep services to workers at their places of employment.

Featured Partner: Bellows Free Academy in Fairfax, Vermont

A morning hug. A new word or letter learned. A child raising his hand in class for the first time. For Beth Blanton, volunteering with Foster Grandparents (FGP) is all about finding joy in helping children learn and develop in small ways.
