Washington West Help for Families Displaced by Tropical Storm Irene- Tropical Storm, Irene has caused unprecedented devastation in Vermont and in our Washington West towns.  During the past week we have seen and heard how this hurricane and flooding has impacted so many families, businesses and schools across the state and our thoughts are with the hundreds of families that have been affected.  Here in Washington West Supervisory Union we have several students, families and staff who have lost their homes and belongings due to the recent flooding.  Many of them are displaced and need financial support for food, clothing, furniture, bedding, toys, etc.
  • If you know of any students or families affected by the flood and in need of support please contact the guidance office at your school.  We are here to help.
  • If you know of students or families who have been displaced and are lacking permanent housing, are temporarily homeless, please contact your school administrator or the WWSU Homeless Education Liaison, Donarae Dawson Pike, who can be reached at 496-2272 x 113.

Vermont's Department of Children and Families says households that received food benefits in August and then lost food during Tropical Storm Irene are eligible for extra benefits. Renee Richardson is director of Vermont's food and nutrition programs. She says people in the ‘3SquaresVT' program will be reimbursed for the value of their food loss up to the amount they were eligible to receive in the month of August.  "This is really important, because some folks stockpile their food. And so, even though the storm hit us about 3 days before the beginning of the next month for some folks who had stockpiled their food or who lost their entire homes or whatever, they will be able to get their full August benefit replaced, if that's the value of their food."    Households in the ‘3SquaresVT' program who lost food as a result of the storm should contact the Vermont Department for Children and Families to request a replacement benefit.   Call 1-800-479-6151.
