ANEW Leaf | Transitional housing for lifelong change.
In response to the problem of finding affordable housing in Burlington, this year, we are launching the ANEW Leaf Program. This 5-month phase is a transitional housing program, located in the upstairs portion of our house at 89 North Street. Participants are paired with a community mentor, complete a renter education course, and practice financial stability by paying a program fee. Each participant’s fee is placed in a rental buffer fund, which is set aside for them. This Program is designed to empower participants toward independence for lifelong change. At the completion of the ANEW Leaf Program, each graduate will be given a housing voucher and will move into their own apartment through our community partnerships with the Champlain Housing Trust and others.
