BRATTLEBORO, VT – Brattleboro’s Seasonal Overflow Shelter will open Monday, November 12th.  After a successful first season located at the upper dormitory on the Winston Prouty campus (formerly the Austine School for the Deaf) last year, Groundworks’ staff and Board are grateful for the opportunity to return to the space.

The former Austine School for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing will house Groundworks Collaborative’s winter overflow shelter. The dormitory-style building can accommodate 33 beds, has adequate living and dining spaces, and ample bathroom facilities. This is an improvement from the First Baptist Church on Main Street which could only handle 20 beds and was over capacity on 43 percent of the 167 nights the shelter was open last winter season.
