There will now be more support for the homeless in Northwest Vermont, as the Champlain Valley Office of Economic Opportunity has announced that they are taking over operations of Samaritan House and Tim’s House, both are emergency shelter organizations.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Paul Dragon, the Executive Director of the CVOEO says they are trying to ensure nobody is “left without shelter, food, warmth, or the possibility to thrive.” Dragon added, “homelessness has been rising all over Vermont, also in Franklin County, so we could not lose this resource.”
