Story Behind the Curve

Since SFY 2014 (inception), the Family Supportive Housing program has nearly quadrupled in size - serving 187 families in SFY2018. The FSH program operated in seven AHS districts serving 183 adults and 279 children. 225 children enrolled were under six at the time of enrollment with FSH.

In SFY 2017, seven Family Supportive Housing Programs enrolled a total of 147 families, an increase of 67% compared to the same period last year. This was due to the addition of two new program sites which opened in in Barre and Bennington. Of the 147 families, 191 were adults and 248 were children. 71% (177) of the children were under the age of 6.

  1. Winston Prouty Center in Brattleboro
