Vermont Business Magazine In honor of the quality care and compassion of its providers, Northeast Vermont Regional Hospital (NVRH) is donating $500 to HOPE and $500 to Umbrella, Inc. NVRH, who decided to donate the funds as part of National Doctors Day, is proud to support local nonprofit organizations and their missions to improve the lives of members of their community.
“As providers, we know that health extends beyond the body,” said NVRH neurologist and medical staff chair Dr. Amanda VanStraten. “There are so many other factors that contribute to health, and we are happy to be able to help our community outside of the exam room.”
HOPE is a private, non-profit agency that helps families and individuals with basic life needs. HOPE is not affiliated with any religious organization or agency and, to fund its mission, operates a thrift store in Lyndonville.
Umbrella’s mission is to cultivate a Northeastern Kingdom where all peoples thrive free from abuse and oppression. Umbrella has been raising the voices of women, families and victims of interpersonal violence since 1976. In 2020, Umbrella began including substance abuse prevention in its GBV prevention programs in recognition of the deep connection between these two community challenges.
