Lund is a leader and advocate for Vermont families – families in your community. Lund believes that all children deserve love and to really love children, we must also support the adults in their lives. For Lund, “love” begins with meeting a person’s most basic and practical needs, like having a safe home, food, and heat. With the right support, families can reach their greatest potential and contribute to our communities.
Lund helps vulnerable families remove barriers to basic needs and take steps towards breaking multigenerational cycles of poverty. Lund programs include integrated case management and family support services to ensure all children in Vermont have what they need to be healthy and safe. Lund is one of the oldest and most recognized family service agencies in Vermont working to change the challenging circumstances faced by many families.
Every day, our clients show resilience and a determination to make their lives better. With the resources and support of Lund and our generous community, clients expand what’s possible in their lives and in the lives of their children.
The We Care 2 donation would support the direct expenses of Lund’s Parent Child Center programs. The goal of these programs is to help parents and caregivers access needed services to meet their basic needs and create safe, healthy homes for their children. The direct impact would be more children in Vermont living in safe, nurturing, stable, and supported families. You cannot take steps towards further education, more sustainable employment, or reaching other life goals if you are worried about your children’s safety, or unable to meet your basic needs. Lund’s Parent Child Programs lay the needed foundation to allow more Vermont families to pursue the economic and educational opportunities that they need to reach their greatest potential both as individuals and members of the community.
