Fall Highlights with Our Community

This fall saw us out and about at community outreach events! From painting pumpkins with SaVida Health to decorating cookies at the Turning Point Center, we met jobseekers where they were at — and had fun doing it. 
We also participated in several inclusive employment events, from Vermont's statewide human resources conference to recovery-friendly workplace panels in New Hampshire and Maine. 
Check out this article spotlighting the zero-barrier work being done in Burlington at King St Laundry!
