On Saturday, May 18, CVOEO and other organizations supporting unhoused members of Vermont communities will be hosting the "In Their Shoes" fundraiser.

Check in for the event starts at 1 p.m. in St. Albans Taylor Park and the main event kicks off at 1:30.


Anyone coming out for "In Their Shoes" will hear from unhoused members of the Franklin and Grand Isle communities and take part in guided walking tours led by members of CVOEO. Organizers said it's an opportunity to raise awareness around the challenges unhoused Vermonters face and the resources available to them.

CVOEO reported that 462 people experienced homelessness in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties last year, which is just a fraction of the numbers across Vermont and New York.
