BRIDGE CONSTRUCTION IN CHELSEA

Both the north bridge (near Chelsea Health Center) and the south bridge (at the south entrance to town near the school parking lot) will be replaced this summer at separate times. This will impact people trying to get to Safeline's office and the Orange County Court. Detours will be marked. Route 110 will be closed for the north bridge replacement from June 18th - June 30th. Route 110 will be closed for the south bridge construction from July 10th - July 24th. Please see the link to the Vermont Judiciary website in the link list at left. Their home page will have a scrolling article about "Traffic and Travel Advisories" and will have a detour map.

Safeline is excited to announce our new logo!


This new look reflects our ongoing mission as we strive to end domestic violence, sexual assault and stalking in Orange and northern Windsor counties. As we worked with Linda Mirabile from RavenMark, Inc., a central Vermont graphic design and communications firm, we needed a redesigned logo that would convey a feeling of safety and inclusion for the survivors we serve. We also wanted to show how Safeline works collaboratively with other organizations for a sense of network and community.

The final logo design is suggestive of a quilt pattern (safety, comfort) with overlapping lines (networking) and rounded diamonds (community, people). The pattern does not say violence or abuse but rather is meant to convey a positive image of what Safeline does to help support and heal those we serve.

The new image is dynamic, showing forward motion similar to the survivors Safeline assists. We are pleased that this logo will become a recognizable identity that people will associate with Safeline’s mission of advocacy, prevention, education and social change.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Safeline's mission,
Linda Ingold, Executive Director

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Safeline has many types of volunteer opportunities. Following is a brief description of some of them.

Hotline Volunteer - Answering Safeline hotline calls. We provide extensive training for hotline volunteers. By using available pagers, answering hotline calls is flexible and convenient, and you can safely and easily respond from your own home. When a volunteer is covering a hotline shift, Safeline staff are always available for backup with any questions or concerns.

Community Outreach - Several types of activity fall within community outreach. We are always trying to better inform our communities about Safeline, our resources and also about the issues of domestic and sexual violence. We frequently need help with distributing poster, brochures, etc. throughout our area, and also with setting up and staffing tables or displays at area fairs and various community events.

Clerical or Computer Work - We often need help in our office with various clerical functions such as copying or collating materials, stuffing or addressing envelopes, maintaining our website, etc.

Building Maintenance - it is very useful to have someone help us with cleaning, mowing, small building repairs or various types of yard work.

Fundraising - At various times, we do fundraising events such as our Annual Appeal, raffles, etc. We also need help gathering signatures on petitions for town appropriation requests or in having representatives who could provide information about Safeline at the annual Town Meetings.

We would love to talk with you further about volunteering! Please contact Judy at (802) 685-7900, ext. 307 or at the email connection below.
