Momentum is a network of LGBTQ+ Vermonters working to create opportunities for a vibrant, diverse, safe, and joyful community of adults over the age of 55. While the Momentum program and events are open to people of all ages, they are designed to address the specific needs of Vermont’s LGBTQ+ aging population.
Momentum’s Neighbor to Neighbor Project connects LGBTQ+ Vermonters over 55 years of age with volunteer peers providing need-based support services that aid with various tasks to address isolation, food security, access to healthcare, and community networking.

Neighbor to Neighbor Program: Momentum, an LGBTQ+ oriented support group for folks age 40 and up, brought to you by the Pride Center of Vermont, PCVT, is seeking reliable and ready volunteers to help service Vermont’s adult LGBTQ+ population, through a new community assistance opportunity, Neighbor to Neighbor. This community outreach program connects LGBTQ+ Vermonters over 55 years of age through need-based support services that aid with various tasks so as to avoid travel to communal spaces.
As we all know, the COVID-19 pandemic has left many vulnerable populations seeking assistance and services to help navigate through what was once considered everyday activities, such as grocery shopping, picking up medications, yard work, etc.
Momentum (a Pride Center of Vermont program) established the Neighbor to Neighbor program with the goal to reunite community members during this time of great separation and to assist those in need of safer solutions throughout their day.
