Bennington County Coalition for the Homeless provides safe shelter, food, and support services from homeless families and individuals in Bennington County. Established in 2000, BCCH is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization in Bennington, Vermont. We provide two year-round shelters for those in our community experiencing homelessness; a family shelter and a shelter for adults. We also provide Outreach Case Management for those experiencing homelessness not in our shelters. Our shelters provide more than just a bed; we offer financial literacy, budgeting, and credit repair programming along with case management and employment readiness. We believe it is essential to provide the tools necessary to maintain and sustain permanent housing that will ultimately break the cycle of homelessness.
