LISTEN meets the need. As a direct result of our community’s generosity, Upper Valley children, seniors, families, and individuals receive a warm meal, fuel for their homes, holiday presents for their children, and life skill education to help them transition to successful independent living. LISTEN does not rely on state or federal funding. It is our connected community—donating groceries, clothing or money—that ensures that when our neighbors are in need, we have the resources to respond.
Now and then things happen beyond our control: an unforeseen event such as a family medical emergency, loss of a job, or unprecedented heating and housing costs. As government funding evaporates, Upper Valley residents living in both New Hampshire and Vermont depend upon LISTEN to “bridge the gap.”
