It's TRUE! We've merged with the Brattleboro Area Drop In Center,
 and will now be known as
GROUNDWORKS COLLABORATIVE!


  
We're so pleased to announce that - after a three-year process of planning and working more closely together - the staff and Boards of Directors of Morningside Shelter and the Brattleboro Area Drop In Center have unanimously agreed to merge and take on the name: 

GROUNDWORKS COLLABORATIVE.  

The result is a single point-of-entry offering a full continuum of housing services in the greater-Brattleboro area. The new organization will continue to offer all of the services currently provided by Morningside Shelter and the Brattleboro Area Drop In Center, including continuing the operation of Vermont’s second largest food shelf and the region’s only year-round homeless shelter.  

We publicly announced our plans to a large crowd gathered in the Brooks House atrium on Friday, May 22nd!  This year's Camp for a Common Cause will continue to serve as our annual fundraiser, and will also be a public celebration of this major milestone for these two well-established organizations.  Come out and join us on Friday, May 29th on the Brattleboro Common!  

You'll soon find us on the web at:  www.GroundworksVT.org
