Support Neighbors Navigating Challenging Times
Capstone financial coach, Mary Johnson (left), recently supported Diana* through a complex point in her life. A single mom of two teenagers, without a car, and living in a motel due to a recent eviction, Diana was simultaneously fired from her job and diagnosed with cancer. Mary helped her enroll in Reach Up and improve her financial skills, and worked with Diana for a year in individual meetings and classes.
Fast forward to today, Diana has a new job, is paying down debt and starting to improve her credit score. Most importantly, she is excited to restart her life with greater stability and independence! *Note: Name has been changed to protect privacy.
Together, we can make these stories of a community that cares a reality. Your donation empowers our neighbors to build security in the face of adversity.
Provide Food and Fuel for Your Neighbors
In the next year, thousands of Central Vermonters will visit Capstone for nutritious meals as well as support to keep their homes warm and safe. None of this work would be possible without the continued support of our dedicated donors.
Our 7th annual Fuel Your Neighbors campaign, powered by VSECU, plans to raise $300,000 in 100 days for our emergency food and heating assistance programs. Please help ensure no Vermonters have to choose between heating their home and feeding their families this winter.
Your gift made today will double its impact with a $1 for $1 match thanks to VSECU.
