Community Resources

In response to COVID-19

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ever-changing access to resources our community, we have created a special page to direct you to services that can help you navigate the available resources in our area at this time. Please refer to our Information About COVID-19 page.

Calling 2-1-1 is also recommended, as an additional resource to find food, shelter, and other basic needs. For all other services, resources, and contacts on this page, we cannot verify how or if they are all operating during this challenging time. We suggest calling them and expect most will have instructions for accessing their services or alternative services and resources.

Resources

In order to protect you and our staff during the COVID-19 pandemic, we regret that we are unable to host many of the community services normally displayed on this page. Community health and wellness are central to our mission, so much of our efforts and resources for this area of our health care are being held off-site or in partnership with others in our community. As we mobilize our community health team operations directly out in the community where it's most needed at this time, it allows the Hospital to focus its major healthcare resources onto the care of the very sick or injured.  

We are fortunate to have the newly formed Windsor Area COVID-19 Response Team (WACRT)—a group of municipal and healthcare leaders and volunteers dedicated to keeping people safe by helping to provide access to essential services. They are helping all our friends and neighbors get through these difficult times together, with support for physical, emotional, financial, and spiritual needs.

Please refer to the Windsor, VT COVID-19 website for more information.

At Mt. Ascutney Hospital and Health Center, we are committed to partnering with our community to improve health and health care in our area. We provide resources for our community, such as information on parenting or teen alcohol risk.
