While we continue as an agency to be proactive and practice hyper-vigilance to ensure community health and safety, we will be taking precautionary measures in all of our programs in response to COVID-19. Find response details for each Spectrum program below.Continue Reading
Spectrum will remain open despite the outbreak of COVID-19. The reality is that our youth need us and you more than ever at this moment and we will be there for them.
Some services and operations have changed to keep both youth and staff safe.
Do You Need Help?
Instead of offering open Drop-In hours, we will serve bagged lunches and dinners 12pm-1pm and 5pm-6pm at 191 Bank Street. Staff will be available for case management and crisis intervention by phone.
Our other programs are open. Call us if you need help or to be connected to a program.
Register for the Virtual Student Sleep Out!
Each year, students all around Vermont join the Spectrum Sleep Out in solidarity with homeless young adults.
This year, due to COVID-19, students will be sleeping out in their own backyards throughout the month of April.
How You Can Help
The Drop-In Center is in need of pre-packaged food donations (e.g. string cheese, fruit cups, chips, snacks), as well as gift cards to local grocery stores for youth and their families that are in need.
Monetary donations are much needed and welcome!
