If you have been outside in Vermont in recent weeks you are aware of the brutal temperatures that have swept this area. Now imagine the inside temperature being just as cold as the outside temperature. This harsh reality for some Vermonters is forcing families in financial hardship to choose between food and fuel, two essential basic needs.

The holiday season is so exceptionally stressful that The American Psychological Association opened a hotline to help people cope with unmanageable stress centered on major stress inducers: family, shopping, over eating and spending. According to an survey roughly 60% of all Americans are stressed by the Holidays and the most common stress factor is finances.
