Our 2nd Annual Pull Against Poverty will take place on Saturday, November 10th at 4 pm at the Robert E. Miller Community Center in Burlington.


The tug of war event is a blast-- bringing together community members seeking to do good and help our neighbors in need.


If you'd like to get involved in this event, whether it be sponsorship, to form a team, donate prizes or funds, please contact Joan White, Development Director at . 


At CVOEO, the community members we serve are single mothers, elderly, veterans, underemployed and unemployed, disabled, refugees. We help people when hardship strikes (loss of a job, homelessness, underemployed, unexpected illness) to bridge gaps with housing, fuel and food assistance. But we also help folks to build stronger futures (credit-building, micro business development, weatherization, tax preparation assistance, early childhood education). We connect short-term and long-term solutions.





CVOEO addresses fundamental issues of economic, social, and racial justice and works with people to achieve economic independence.
