Windham and Windsor Housing Trust celebrates new apartments


Brattleboro, Vt. – Today, Representatives from Senator Sanders, Senator Leahy, and Congressman Welch’s office joined residents and staff from Windham & Windsor Housing Trust (WWHT) to celebrate the opening of WWHT’s 22 permanent supportive housing apartments known as Great River Terrace. The event included a tour of the efficiency apartments as well as the community building, which will host a bevy of services for residents and community members throughout the year.

Great River Terrace is located on Putney Road at the site of the former Lamplighter Inn and was designed by Brattleboro architects, Stevens & Associates and built by GPI Construction, also located in Brattleboro. WWHT is working with Groundworks Collaborative and Health Care and Rehabilitation Services (HCRS) to provide support and services to the residents to help them stabilize their lives. Residency will be given to the most vulnerable in the community via a locally coordinated entry system of care, which is meant to streamline the process to find housing for families and individuals experiencing homelessness. Groundworks will provide support services that will focus on some of the day to day needs of each resident through the work of a full-time on site case manager. HCRS will provide mental health services through a part-time on site case manager and WWHT will provide a part-time housing support coordinator to organize group resident activities and programs.

Howard Kendrick Young DECEMBER 20, 1943 - JULY 1, 2018

Howard Kendrick Young, 74, died on Sunday, July 1st. Ken was born in Schenectady, NY on December 20, 1943 to Gordon and Barbara Young. He graduated from Clinton Central School in Clinton, NY in 1961 where he played football and participated in band and orchestra.

He earned his Bachelor of Arts in English from Maryville College, TN, in 1965 and moved to Vermont to teach for a “couple of years” before intending to return to graduate school. 40 years later, HK retired from teaching at North Country HIgh School, having formed lasting relationships with countless students and colleagues.

North Country was an important part of HK’s life. He started his career as an English teacher at Derby Academy and then became one of the first teachers to open NCUHS in 1967. It was at North Country that he met and soon married Jaclyn Conley on June, 21 1969 and they taught together for over 35 years. He coached the first Freshman football team, organized staff parties at Prouty Beach, and was the Voice of Falcon Football for many years, doing play-by-play, color commentary, and comedic relief all at once. Most notably HK directed and produced multiple musicals while at North Country and started the Derby Stock Company. His work in the fine arts at North Country and in the Northeast Kingdom has had a deep and enduring impact on his students and the community.
