Sunrise thanks supporters

On behalf of Sunrise Family Resource Center, Inc. we thank the voters in Bennington and Pownal for voting yes on your town ballots in support of the services Sunrise provides to strengthen families in your communities and throughout Southern Vermont. We also thank North Bennington, Shaftsbury, and Arlington for continuing to support Sunrise in your annual budgets.

Sunrise connects families with community resources, provides educational experiences and builds relationships that promote independence and resilience. In 2015 we worked with more than 800 families and nearly 200 educators and early childhood care givers in Bennington County, connecting them with concrete supports, strengthening their safety net, and providing parenting and child development information. Your support of this work underscores one of our core values: Hope makes change possible.
