Did you know that 80% of suburban and rural Chittenden County seniors have limited access to transportation? Neighbor Rides brings people and places together in Chittenden County. Volunteers use their own cars to help seniors and people with disabilities get where they need to be. Basically, it is neighbors helping neighbors, people volunteering to drive a senior or person with disabilities to medical appointments, grocery stores, and other essential errands. Neighbor Rides matches volunteer drivers to those in need of a ride. Help a neighbor, and sign up to volunteer for Neighbor Rides. For more information about Neighbor Rides, email Alyson at the United Way of Chittenden County at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call her at 802-861-7833.
Since 1996, the Milton PATCH members have been meeting monthly to work together in finding ways to support children and families in our community. One of the key functions of PATCH is to bring agency and organizational partners to the table, providing forums to help service providers better understand what each other is doing, coordinate services more effectively, and to fill gaps, reduce duplication and expand community development. In an effort to meet these goals, monthly meetings (along with a free lunch!) are hosted by the Milton Family Community Center for area agencies to come together to share ideas, resources and to continually improve access of services within the Milton community.
