Challenge Challenge

Strategy Strategy

  • Improve collaboration around affordable housing and amplify the efforts of existing housing partners (eliminating access barriers, zoning solutions, work with housing partners)
  • Develop a sustainable, collaborative system for increasing access to resources (virtual and physical navigation hubs throughout county).
  • Launch specific, sustainable projects that will build and formalize partnerships between businesses and community partners (Working Bridges, recovery friendly workplaces, employee pathways).
  • Gather qualitative data regarding the experience of BIPOC community members while supporting them in the work.

Vision Vision

By January 2023, the Lamoille Working Communities Challenge team will have launched several financially and programmatically sustainable initiatives that will advance housing, access to resources, and businesses-community collaboration (in the form of Recovery Friendly Workplaces, Working Bridges, and business trainings, among others).
