Everyone deserves to have their basic needs met and a community is stronger when we offer a hand up to our most vulnerable neighbors.

The Haven is greatly appreciative of the visit yesterday by Vermont’s U.S. House Representative @repbeccab and members of her team!
We provided a tour of our campus, including a visit to the Hixon Adult Shelter. Becca and her team pitched in our Food Shelf on a busy afternoon before Thanksgiving, providing service to the community. The Congresswoman concluded her visit with a sit-down meeting with Haven staff and Board of Director leadership to discuss the challenges of addressing issues of poverty, food insecurity, mental and physical health and housing affordability and availability at the community level.
We appreciated her support for progressive ideas that we know work – supportive housing to end homelessness, keeping the pipeline of new affordable housing full, shelter to save lives, reinstituting the increases to the child tax credit, increased availability of affordable childcare and more. We look forward to her next visit and appreciate all the contacts we had with her hard-working staff who help to solve constituent issues every day. Vermont is well represented when Becca is in the House! 🤩 ...
