We’re Focused on What Matters Most Right Now in the Champlain Valley and Across Greater Vermont
At the JLCV our focus continues to evolve according to our community’s most pressing needs. Our current community goal of affordable living can be achieved through education, raising awareness and supporting families with tangible results. In 2019, we established Chittenden County’s first Diaper Bank and continue to focus on advocacy at the state and federal level to impose, among other things, a diaper stipend for low-income families.
Our goal is to help Vermont women develop civic leadership skills through the work they do, then put those talents to work in the communities that need it. Our current focus of affordable living gives women opportunities to grow, while positively impacting the communities where they live and work.
We’re Transforming Vermont Communities By Challenging the Status Quo
No matter what we’re currently focusing on, JLCV’s work centers around improving our local communities through effective action and leadership. We have identified affordable living as the most pressing issue in our community right now, and we are helping local women take action to resolve it. So far this year, we have distributed over 200.000 diapers to our food shelf partners. We believe that these impactful actions have the power to bring us closer to our goal of making diapers in particular a necessity all families can afford regardless of their circumstances.
