To the Editor:

It is with deep gratitude, on behalf of the families we serve, our staff and board of directors, that we extend a huge thank you to all the voters of Bennington, North Bennington, Shaftsbury, Pownal and Arlington for their support at the polls. Sunrise Family Resource Center Programs provide support to families at no cost.

Our multi-generational approach helps to enhance parenting skills, and foster the healthy development and wellbeing of children, youth and families. We offer concrete services in times of need, work to prevent child abuse and neglect and help children be prepared for school.

Although we receive much of our funding from the State of Vermont, it isn't enough to cover our costs. We cannot help families without our local supports. Please know when you vote each year for our allocation, you're investing in the healthy development of families throughout Bennington County. A vote for Sunrise is a vote for Families! For this we say thank you.

If you have questions, please feel free to reach out!

Many thanks as always,

Denise Main,


The writer is executive director of the Sunrise Family Resource Center in Bennington.
