Groundworks Collaborative lost a beloved staff member—the Coordinator of Morningside House—in the tragic events of April 3rd at that shelter.
Leah Rosin-Pritchard is irreplaceable. She was a wonderfully strong, positive, beautiful and compassionate person who gave generously of her spirit and skills in support of all Morningside House residents and her professional colleagues. There are no words to express the depth of loss felt by her Groundworks teammates and our hearts go out to her family and friends.
We can unequivocally say that Groundworks will not be the same without Leah. Our staff and our program participants are grieving. We are, at the same time, personally and organizationally impacted, and we are focused on supporting each other while continuing to provide food, shelter, and supportive services to people who need us.
At Groundworks, we are steadfast in our dedication to our mission—working with people and systems to end hunger and homelessness for all people in our region—and we will not fail. Stand with us.
The Chalet, formerly known as Dalem’s Chalet on South Street in West Brattleboro, is now the site of significant activity. Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) and Groundworks Collaborative have partnered to take a significant step towards ending homelessness in Brattleboro by providing permanent homes and supportive services to individuals who are currently sheltered in motels.
As our country mourns the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless others before them, we, as Groundworks Collaborative, stand in solidarity with those working tirelessly to dismantle racism and systemic inequity.
