Help Us Put a Smile on More Faces
Make a difference this holiday season and sign up to be a Howard Center holiday giving sponsor! Gather your friends and colleagues and contribute new toys or games, new warm clothing, and gift and food certificates. Your gift will help community members who depend on Howard Center for services – children with emotional and behavioral concerns; adults struggling with mental illness and substance use issues; and children and adults with intellectual disabilities and autism.
Last year, nearly 600 children and adults benefited from our Holiday Giving Project, which provided gifts to Howard Center clients who otherwise would not have shared in this aspect of the seasonal celebrations. We greatly appreciate – and depend on – the generosity of the individuals, businesses, schools, faith communities, and volunteer groups that make this program such a success.
Howard Center Community Education Series
Everyone experiences sadness, low energy, or decreased pleasure in things from time to time. When does ordinary sadness get to the point where increased concern is warranted? What do we mean when we say somebody is depressed? What can we do to prevent depression from happening or worsening, and what we can do to recover from depression?
Howard Center’s free Community Education Series presents discussions on topics of interest and relevance in our community. Please join us at these informational talks from 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm on September 10, October 7, and November 12 at Dealer.com at 1 Howard Street, Burlington (@ the corner of Howard and Pine Streets).
All presentations will offer the opportunity for questions and answers. Registration is not required; seating is first-come, first-served. For questions, call 802-488-6912.
Mission Possible: A Fun Way to Learn About Your Community
We are excited to be one of the local non-profits chosen to participate in the United Way of Chittenden County’s Mission Possible event on Sunday, October 11. 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Mission Possible features two-person teams that compete in fun physical and mental challenges. Along the way, they learn about some of the non-profit organizations connected to the United Way in the Burlington area. We are honored that Howard Center is one of the organizations to be included in this year’s event.
For more information and to register your two-person team, visit the United Way Mission Possible web page.
