Only three states in the U.S. have a Coalition structure to ensure that youth in all communities have access to services. Vermont is one of them.
VCRHYP benefits from the support of a number of community, state and national partners. These are individuals and groups that recognize the crucial nature of services to runaway & homeless youth. Without such support, VCRHYP would be less effective at meeting the needs of Vermont youth.
Senator Patrick Leahy has been a leader on national policy surrounding runaway and homeless youth. The effects of Senator Leahy's actions reach far beyond his home state of Vermont, to have a positive impact on young people across the U.S. We thank Senator Leahy for his youth advocacy, and for his dedicated support for VCRHYP.
The Vermont Community Foundation provides important support for VCRHYP Transitional Living Programs allowing services to impact the lives of transition-aged youth in several Vermont communities.
The National Life Group Foundation has demonstrated its generous support for the Vermont Coalition of Runaway & Homeless Youth Programs by donating printing services.
VCRHYP thanks Google for grant funds that support the VCRHYP website.
Vermont photographer Ned Castle has partnered with VCRHYP on a project that tells the stories of youth served by VCRHYP agencies, in their own words -- stories that are seldom heard. Ned's work reveals the power of personal narrative through compelling photographs, imagery and audio. Watch them here.
Individual people familiar with a Coalition agency in their community, or who feel connected to the overall mission of VCRHYP, make donations through this website. Page and Jed Guertin recently made a generous donation to support VCRHYP programs statewide.
VCRHYP is a 501(c )(3) organization. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed under law.
