And you might ask, why did we do it?
Well, while Spectrum is best known for our work with homeless youth—our supportive housing programs and our Drop-In Center—we also have several other programs that serve teens, young adults, and even adults who need our help but are not necessarily homeless.
Here are some examples of what I’m talking about:
- We work with about 200 youth each year who are or have been in state custody or foster care
- Our nationally recognized counseling program serves 400 young people and their families each year from a wide range of backgrounds
- Our mentoring program works closely with school guidance counselors to match 75 teenagers with adult mentors
- Our domestic violence intervention program works with about 400 men in Vermont

With all of these programs in mind, we put our heads together and with a lot of help came up with our new look. We kept the outline of the roof above our name because we know that the idea of home and family looms large for many of our clients. But it is also a path forward moving towards a spectrum of rays that represent the wide range of teens, young adults, and people with a history of violence who turn to us for help.
And, we wanted a new website to better tell the story of what we do and how you, our supporters, help us do it. I hope you like it.
Many, Many Thanks!
Several people and firms helped us along the way, all offering substantial discounts or in-kind support. We owe much gratitude to Spike Advertising, Michael Dabbs, Liquid Studio, Signarama, and Ned Castle. Thank you for your wisdom, creativity, and support!
We owe a special thank you to Tag New Media, for going above and beyond to design our beautiful new website. Let me know what you think.
