Wanted: Feasibility Study Support and Resources

WANTED: Looking for people to call on for support and resources as I complete my graduate capstone which is a feasibility study to determine if a community resource center in Brattleboro should and could be created and if it would be sustainable.

Additionally this center would offer community members access to many services and resources in one location. .
