About Vermont Elder Resource Group

Here at Vermont Elder Resource Group, we see value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 2000, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment and progress.

Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to take risks. Vermont Elder Resource Group emerged out of a pursuit to inspire and support the community, and a desire for actions to speak louder than words.

Mission Statement

To provide professionals and organizations serving Vermont older adults with peer-to-peer education and networking opportunities enabling them to better serve their clients. All members share the common desire to promote successful aging in our communities through increased knowledge and referral of appropriate resources.
