Spectrum Youth Services

CDBG funds are being subgranted to Specturm Youth and Family Service to be used for operational expenses related to the establishment of a new regional Drop-In Center that will provide support services to at-risk and homeless youth and young adults in Franklin County. Vermont. In 2012, the Vermont Department for Children and Families (DCF) asked Spectrum to expand its work out of Chittendnen County, Vermont and into Franklin and Grand Isle Counties, in order to help 14- to 21-year-olds, who are in or aging out of foster care, prepare for independent living. Stakeholders who were consulted to develop the Youth Drop-in Center plans included the St. Albans City Police Chief, School Superintendent, current and former City Mayor, the United Way in St. Albans, Northwestern Medical Center, Northwest Counseling and Support Services, the Samaritan House, and several business leaders. All expressed support for the idea of Spectrum expanding services and each also conveyed concern regarding the challenges youth face and the needs in their community.
