As we approach the start of summer, and watch vaccination rates in Vermont go up and COVID-19 cases go down, we are excited to announce that we are (gradually, with caution and care for ourselves and our community) expanding in-person services and events at Pride Center of Vermont. Our next phase of re-opening will include making Curbside Pickup available during full Center hours, offering outdoor in-person events and meetups, and opening Center resources such as the Library, Cyber Center, and other program-specific services to the community by appointment. Full list of services and COVID-19 Guidelines are below. Do you have questions, or requests for a service or resource that isn’t listed? Call us at (802) 860-7812 or email firstname.lastname@example.org!
