Agency of Human Services & Community Initiatives  

We've designed a plan to reduce the rate of incarceration for women and to develop strategies to successfully support women returning to the community. 

The Deter Project is designed to provide substance abuse/mental health assessments for women while still in jail but on the verge of release as well using a collaborative, interdisciplinary team approach to achieve positive outcomes. We're seeing pretty dramatic results for women from our community. 

The Barre Housing Now plan addresses many of the issues the community faces.  If you want to join the effort, you can become a member of our local Continuum of Care team (currently meets monthly on the second Monday from 10:00 am to noon at the Vermont Community Land Trust office at 107 North Main Street, Barre).

In Morrisville, the Continuum of Care team also meets monthly (currently meets the fourth Tuesday at 1:30 pm at AHS at 63 Professional Driver, Morrisville).

Since October of 2007, a group of local leaders have been meeting to better organize our local system of care for children and youth.  The impetus for this work has been the Interagency Agreement between the Department of Education and the Agency of Human Services as well as our shared commitment to do what we can to support children and families.

"The Mission of the Vermont Military Family & Community Network is to develop and maintain a multi-group community network amongst the community, government and private sectors that creates an awareness of programs and provides services to all returning service members and their families."
