Brattleboro Overflow Shelter Returns to First Baptist Church
Groundworks Collaborative will be coordinating this year’s Seasonal Overflow Shelter (SOS) in downtown Brattleboro at the First Baptist Church, 190 Main Street. The shelter, open each winter from early November through the end of April, provides a safe and warm place to stay for individuals experiencing homelessness during the winter season.
Active participants in the Shareholder and Customer Forum have concluded that regular meetings of this group are no longer needed, although many of us are willing to help out, on an as-needed basis, if requested by the Board or BFC management.
