Join us in celebrating Morningside Shelter's 35th Anniversary!

The Hatch Presents:
Storytellers on a Mission
with Peter Sagal (host of NPR's
Wait Wait . . . Don't Tell Me!)
April 19th at the newly renovated Latchis Theatre in Brattleboro.  Some of the nation's greatest storytellers tell hilarious stories to raise $35,000 for Morningside Shelter's 35th Anniversary!  Please note, this event is not suitable for children.  
Sponsored by Vermont Public Radio, with support from Foard Panel and Farnum Insulators.
All children deserve the right to play, regardless of their housing status.  

We envision a space where children can develop their imaginative skills, build physical and emotional strength, develop confidence, and stay healthy with regular physical activity.   Thank you to MVP's Project GO! for helping us achieve our goals for a new playground!

The Brattleboro Area Drop-In Center and Morningside Shelter need your help!  
We were fortunate that the Brattleboro Area Drop-In Center was able to open the Brattleboro Winter Overflow Shelter nearly a month early this year!  Thank you to all of those who have stepped up to help as volunteers - we couldn't do it without you!  However, the Drop-In Center is still seeking volunteers for some available shifts.

This is a meaningful volunteer opportunity, perfect for students, retirees, anyone and everyone. Volunteer training is available. 
Anyone interested in supporting this vital program should contact Lucie Fortier: or 802.257.5415.
