As a student live-in intern at the Rutland Dismas House, I have taken notice and been inspired at just how much community support we receive. We get donations of food every week and our dinners are prepared for us every week night by people from within the community. Staff is always busy with receiving and entering checks from people all over Vermont and beyond.
The Dismas Board has been very altruistic in the giving of their time and support to residents. They inspire me in my future involvement in the community. Also, a special thanks to the St. Bridget’s Church in sponsoring the Variety Show held in West Rutland to benefit the Rutland Dismas House this past weekend. It was a blast of fresh air for us all.
