The Office of Racial Equity and Community Inclusion (ORECI) compiles information to help CVOEO New American clients know and access the resources available to them. New Americans can call the ORECI Hotline at 802 860 1417 X117 and leave a message in their primary language when prompted. Our Community Ambassadors will call clients back and help them navigate CVOEO services (housing, utility assistance, financial and credit management, food, education, transportation services, and more). The resource section also provides information about services offered outside of CVOEO that Community Ambassadors can help them with.
