Basic Needs Met with Dignity

Groundworks Collaborative was established in 2015 as a result of the merger of the Brattleboro Area Drop In Center and Morningside Shelter. We provide ongoing support to families and individuals facing housing and food insecurities in the greater Brattleboro, Vermont area.


The Seasonal Overflow Shelter (SOS) is OPEN and seeking volunteers!

The SOS opened November 1st at the First Baptist Church at 190 Main Street, Brattleboro, and will remain open through the winter season.

We are in need of more volunteers for the 1am – 7am shift, supervising the shelter.

If you are willing to help, please contact Parker at or 802-490-8178.
