Mission Milestone

This summer, we supported 100 people actively working across VT, NH, and MA for the first time in our history.
That support can look like:
  • A peer coach tracking down a free pair of steel-toe boots
  • An account manager advocating to retain a position after conflict
  • A team collaborating to secure housing
In moments big and small, our community makes this work possible. Here's to 100 more!
