Fall 2019 Happenings
In October, RCPCC was awarded $20,000 in capital support from the State of Vermont’s: Human Services and Educational Facilities (HSEF) Grant Program. The program is provided through the Vermont department of Buildings and General Services. This award will help enable the heating (and cooling) system to be installed and fully functional at our Chaplin Ave Early Childhood Education Center – part of the flood damage mitigation project at the site. This includes a new boiler and air conditioning, all attendant wiring, piping and ventilation installed throughout the building. Humble thanks for this vital state support for infrastructure.
In August, RCPCC was awarded a $5,000 grant from the Windham Foundation to support the new NatureWorks Program. These funds will help us get this new, innovative project – which provides young adults with a combination of nature experience, technical and academic learning – off the ground. Our gratitude to Windham for supporting innovation!
In October, RCPCC received a crucial donation of $10,000 from the Conserve Forever Foundation, to facilitate completion of the Chaplin Campus 2Gen Whole Family Education Center. Deepest thanks to those who come through when the need is greatest!
Return to Chaplin Ave.! On November 1 st , we reopened the doors to our refurbished early childhood education space on Chaplin Ave. Many people worked very hard to make this time sensitive transition possible – too many to thank in one post. Come take a look and see this wonderful new space and the kids and staff thriving in it!
