Mission: Founded in response to the July 2023 flooding event, the mission of the Lamoille Area Recovery Network (LEARN) is to assist individuals and families impacted by flooding and other natural disasters and support resilience building in light of almost certain future disasters. LEARN will do this by:
- Assessing and cataloging the unmet needs of individuals and families impacted by the disaster
- Identifying and securing financial and other resources to meet those individual and family unmet needs
- Coordinating and managing the matching of resources to the needs
- Supporting targeted town and community efforts to prepare for and build resilience against future disasters.
LEARN will serve individuals and families impacted by disasters in the towns of the Morrisville Agency of Human Services District.
LEARN is committed to re-imagine and hold up systems that embrace and celebrate diversity in all forms. LEARN recognizes our organizational shortcomings and sees recovery as a moment to re-imagine systems that marginalize our neighbors and fellow community members. We are committed to using our re-imagined systems as a means for ensuring equitable access to resources, thriving individuals, families and communities, and the creation of a culture of belonging across the Morrisville Human Services District.
