Through community fundraising, ACCT is able to:
- House families who can't find an affordable place to live--formerly homeless families moving into their first apartment, people moving to the area for job opportunities, and homebuyers who need help with a downpayment on a home;
- Invest in new housing opportunities, like putting a downpayment on a land acquisition for future affordable housing;
- Dedicate more resources to maintainence: fewer potholes and better curb appeal in your communities, and sustainable, quality housing for our residents;
- Improve our software, reducing time spent on back-office operations and more time helping people get into and maintain their housing.
And so much more. In 2016, dozens of families found housing because ACCT is here to provide housing that working and vulnerable Vermonters can afford--housing that is energy efficient, safe and well maintained, and located near town centers and public transportation.
At McKnight Lane alone, we have housed 14 low-income households in beautiful new affordable homes; 8 of which were homeless or imminently homeless, 3 more of which were seniors in previously unsustainable housing, and the remaining 3 households had needs that the previous housing did not meet and are now satisfied in the new homes at McKnight Lane.
Your support makes this possible. As we brave these sub-zero temperatures and gear up for sleet and freezing rain, dozens more families have housing that will keep them warm and dry, without breaking the bank. Thank you!
