The Bishop deGoesbriand Appeal for Human Advancement
The Bishop deGoesbriand Appeal for Human Advancement raises money to support local non-profit organizations who make a difference in the daily lives of Vermonters. On Ash Wednesday, Vermont parishes take up a collection to support this grant program. This support helps provide financial resources for homeless shelters, right to life programs, food programs for children and families and more.
Since the Appeal’s inception, more than 180 nonprofit organizations across the State have been awarded grants. Here are a few examples of how these grants impact the lives of Vermonters.
At Martha’s Kitchen in St. Albans, the grant was used to sustain their hours of operation to include 7 days a week. Martha’s Kitchen served over 23,000 meals in 2017 and they continue to see an increase in the number of seniors who do not have food security.
At the Good Samaritan Haven in Barre, the grant was used for the Emergency Shelter Program which provided shelter and support to over 200 people.
At HOPE in Addison County, the grant gave the agency the ability to respond to clients’ needs for assistance. The agency commented, “Your support has a tremendous impact on our ability to respond to the needs of some of the most vulnerable populations in our county. Thank you for your continued commitment and support to our community – we truly appreciate it.”
At the Community Emergency Relief Volunteers in Northfield, the grant made a difference in the lives of more than 2296 families (6214 individuals) who visited the food shelf. The coordinator said, “We are grateful for the grant. We cannot imagine what the families would have done without your generosity.”
