New Foundations

With hard work on the part of the program participants and guidance from our Program Manager, the end goal of this 2-year program is permanent housing, employment, and self-sufficiency. During their time in the program, participants do not pay rent but they do pay into a savings account. Participants work on furthering their education whether a technical program, certificate, or diploma. 

This program has been successful in helping people get out of poverty and live a life free from public assistance.  It's amazing what someone can accomplish once you take the worry of housing off the table!

For more information contact our Program Manager, Wanda Audet at or (802) 888-3252.
