In Their Shoes

As a critical fundraiser for local emergency service and food providers, In Their Shoes aims to educate the community about homelessness in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties by offering an opportunity to learn about the daily challenges that our unhoused neighbors encounter. In Their Shoes participants are provided with a guided tour around St. Albans by CVOEO staff members who share information about what it means to experience homelessness in our community.

Why it Matters

In 2022, 350 people experienced homelessness in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties, and our doors were open to offer support, resources, and hope. All funds raised through In Their Shoes go directly to assisting individuals and families experiencing homelessness in their transition into safe, affordable, and permanent housing. 

If you are unable to attend the annual event and wish to make a donation, please mail a gift to:
