June is National LGBT Pride Month!

LGBT Pride is a positive stance against discrimination and violence towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.
The month of June was chosen for LGBT Pride Month to commemorate the Stonewall riots, which occurred at the end of June 1969. As a result, many pride events are held during this month to recognize the impact LGBT people have had in the world.
"I call upon all Americans to observe this month by fighting prejudice and discrimination in their own lives and everwhere it exists."
- Proclamation by U.S President Barack Obama, May 31, 2011

In 2016, what were Vermonters most in need of?

Each year, we evaluate the services Vermonters were referred to the most and publish them as our Barometer of Community Needs. Curious about which services made the Top 10? Click here to find out!

 

Vermont 2-1-1 is the number to dial to find out about hundreds of important community resources, like emergency food and shelter, disability services, counseling, senior services, health care, child care, drug and alcohol programs, legal assistance, transportation agencies, educational and volunteer opportunities, and much more.

 

2-1-1 is not an emergency number like 9-1-1, nor is it directory assistance like 4-1-1.

 

2-1-1 is your first step toward solving everyday problems or

when you are facing difficult times.


It’s a free service. It’s confidential. It’s 24/7.
