  • Another Successful Sleep Out!

    We just wrapped up another successful Spectrum Sleep Out, presented by Vermont Federal Credit Union. This year, we set a goal to raise $300,000 for youth facing homelessness and other challenges. We’ve raised $324,000 and counting!

    This year we had an incredible 417 people sleep out in solidarity with youth facing homelessness and other challenges.

    At the Burlington and St. Albans Sleep Outs, we watched a video of a youth who shared their story about how they found Spectrum.

Each youth will receive a total of $30,000 over the course of the 18-month intervention to support progress toward securing housing and independence.

    Spectrum’s Direct Cash Transfer program is designed to empower youth by providing them with a stable cash flow to help them pursue housing, jobs, education — whatever they need.
