Your Gift is Very Important

Those we serve are at the heart of everything we do – helping people to grow, develop, recover and lead the best lives possible.

You can choose to donate to our General Fund or to a specific fund described below. With your help we can continue to provide services, educate and reduce stigma in our community. Click the fund below you wish to learn more about.

Donations to our General Fund will be used to support an area or program where it is most needed.

UCS provides outpatient counseling and addictions service, emergency mental health services, extensive rehabilitation services, home and school-based services and employment services for people living with a mental illness or with developmental disabilities.

Charles “Charlie” Goodwin was hardworking, holding down several jobs and his love of animals inspired him to volunteer at the local Second Chance Animal Shelter.

Charlie’s Fund supports efforts to raise awareness of the importance of well-being while reducing the stigma often times associated with seeking treatment. The fund will assist with programming and education designed to fight stigma and support understanding. People with mental health conditions are not alone.

Erin cared deeply about both the two- and four- legged residents of Bennington County. Those who knew and loved her would say, “She would care for any critter that crossed her path in need of love and nurturing.” Erin extended her heart to others, and her memorial fund will carry out her wish to help alleviate suffering. Contributions will be used to facilitate a way out for those in violent relationships, improve advocacy for children, enable participation in equine- assisted psychotherapy, and conduct outreach to the greater Bennington community.

Gregory S. Hillman was a spirited young man, highly accomplished musician and athlete who attended Reed College and was always there for friends in need.
