The Vermont Coalition of Runaway and Homeless Youth Programs (http://www.vcrhyp.org/) provides a statewide safety net for youth in need by supporting a network of 14 agencies throughout the state. Coalition members are community experts providing emergency shelter, food, clothing, crisis stabilization, transitional housing, mental health care, access to community resources, substance abuse treatment, peer support systems, youth leadership opportunities and a host of other services designed to aid in the healthy development of youth.
The Coalition leadership works to increase capacity and access to resources, build awareness, secure funding and enhance partnerships and collaborations so that youth are well-supported with all the agencies and individuals they connect with in their community in times of crisis.
CoolSnowGlobes is pleased to have donated a farewell gift to their Executive Director Calvin Smith, who is moving on to supporting Homeless Veterans in Vermont and New Hampshire.
Calvin will be dearly missed.
