Help is Available at OCPCC - December 10, 2020 by Jennie

Dear Community Members,

Please remember that the Orange County Parent Child Center has many programs that support families with young children.

In addition to these programs; we are a diaper bank, we can provide food and other household essentials, and we can make referrals to state agencies if you are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. And if you need someone to listen and help you sort out any problems you may be facing, we are here for you with a friendly, non-judgmental ear.

If your family could use some extra support of any kind, please let us know by emailing, or calling our Executive Director, Lindsey Trombley (802) 685-2264.

If Lindsey is not there, please leave a message or email her directly

COVID and Travel - July 20, 2020 by Jennie


Families Traveling

Anyone returning or traveling to Vermont must follow Vermont’s mandatory quarantine policy. Vermonters returning from an out-of-state trip must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test.

If you have been vaccinated, you do not need to quarantine to travel to Vermont or return to Vermont, as long as at least 14 days have passed since you received your final vaccine dose.

The State of Vermont has suspended all social gatherings between multiple households. Travelers may not stay with a Vermont host or stay in a Vermont lodging establishment or short-term rental with another household, except that a vaccinated individual or household may stay with a single non-vaccinated household.

Even if you have completed a quarantine, or intend to quarantine with another household, you may not gather with another household in Vermont. (Individuals who live alone may gather with members of their immediate family residing in a different household).

Vermonters must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for the states they plan to visit.

Wishing you Happy and Safe Travels!

Our Commitment to Racial Equity - June 20, 2020 by Jennie

We, the Board of Directors, management, and staff of Orange County Parent Child Center understand that systems of racism and oppression are at the root of inequities in health, hunger, education, and economic opportunity.

We are fully aware that these issues disproportionately affect African American, indigenous, and all people of color in this country and in the State of Vermont.

As an organization that works with families and youth, we recognize that we have the responsibility to partner with parents in raising children who are not only respectful and kind but are also aware of injustice and their power to correct it. We commit to doing this work in developmentally appropriate ways rooted in hope and compassion.

In memory of the countless victims of police violence and human rights violations, and in support of the Black Lives Matter movement, we commit to:

  • Educating ourselves deeply about anti-racism, especially within the area of early childhood education.
  • Centering racial justice in all our work.
  • Listening to and amplifying the voices of African American people, indigenous people, and other people of color in our community and nationwide.
  • Partnering with groups and organizations working on racial justice in our communities.
  • Ensuring the safety and comfort of marginalized communities in all of our programs and service models.
  • Changing our internal systems and structures wherever necessary to dismantle systemic racism.
  • Broadening the circle and expanding the conversation around racism in Vermont.
