The Resource Coordinator is Amanda Sabo, a certified Information and Referral Specialist with Southeastern Vermont Community Action, a non-profit organization serving Windham and Windsor counties.

This is a free and confidential service. Once a week in September through November 2013, Amanda will be available at each school.
