    Many thanks

    OUR House of Central Vermont is a nonprofit organization located in Barre. For over 24 years we have been Washington County’s Children’s Advocacy Center by providing free services for children and their families. In cases of child sexual abuse and severe physical abuse, OUR House, which stands for One Unified Response, provides a safe, supportive and child-friendly environment to conduct forensic interviews, therapy sessions, safety planning and case management.

    On behalf of the OUR House board of directors and staff we wish to thank the following businesses for their generosity.

    On April 13 Sylvia’s a Gallery of Style held a very successful Cut-a-Thon and donated the proceeds to us.

    In recognition of April as Sexual Violence Awareness Month and Prevent Child Abuse Month, on April 25 we held our first Dine for OUR House benefit. Arvad’s Pub & Grill and Julio’s Cantina contributed 5 percent of their daily proceeds. Cornerstone Pub & Kitchen, Sarducci’s and the Steak House presented us with donations.

    Again, our sincere thank you to these businesses for their generosity and commitment to OUR House.
