All Hands In



Our Goal, Vision & Commitment

Help Make a Difference

Black River Good Neighbor Services’ mission is to provide confidential, temporary food, clothing and financial assistance to those in need, helping them return to self-sufficiency.

In Vermont, 1 in 4 people struggle with hunger.

Black River Good Neighbor Services offers several assistance programs, both on our own and on behalf of other organizations. We administer programs for the U.S. Department of Agriculture and provide assistance in accessing programs run by the State of Vermont and by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. BRGNS also operates a thrift store and furniture store, both of which help cover some of the expense of providing assistance.
