PINS (Partners in Service)

The PINS (Partners In Service) Program is a partnership between the Waitsfield UCC and the Department for Children and Families, Family Services Division, in Barre.

Our church, along with other churches in Washington County, participates in a wide range of programs that often cover gaps between what Family Services is able to fund, and the actual needs of the families they serve.

Annual events include our Holiday Gift Giving, Mothers’ Day Baby Shower, and School Supply Drive.  Throughout the year, Family Services will notify us of special requests or emergency needs, and we will ask our congregants for items such as household supplies, furniture, or even money towards summer camp tuition to fulfill the request.  Whatever the need, we try our best to make it happen.  Read more about Vermont’s PINS program, HERE.
