Throughout the unprecedented challenges of the current pandemic, SEVCA not only maintained its essential role in providing critical services and assistance to individuals and families in crisis, we led in the mobilization of multiple sectors to effectively and efficiently administer new programs addressing food security (VT Everyone Eats), housing, energy costs, economic distress, and other critical needs.  Looking to the future we seek to further develop our capacity to engage, mobilize and innovate to seize the opportunities present in this extraordinary period in which our state and nation have expanded the resources and the commitment to improve the lives and futures of our communities.
