Appointment of New Cathedral Square Board Members

Dr. Mark Levine, Aaron Ferenc, and Sarah Muyskens have been named to the Board of Directors for Cathedral Square. “We are thrilled to welcome these three highly accomplished Vermonters to our board,” says Cathedral Square CEO Kim Fitzgerald. “They each bring a unique perspective and area of expertise to our organization as we continue to address the critical need for equal access to quality, service-enriched, affordable homes for older adults and people with diverse needs in Vermont.”

Groups Call For More Investment for Housing

Cathedral Square is proud to join with many of our housing partners from around Vermont to urge the state to increase its investment in affordable housing by $175 million during the 2023 legislative session. We recognize that safe, affordable housing is the foundation of health, individual and community well-being, and economic, racial, and social justice. We urge incoming lawmakers to prioritize funding for affordable housing so that all Vermonters can thrive.

Volunteers to the Rescue Amid Labor Shortage & Soaring Prices

Like virtually every other business and organization, we cycle through periods of being short-staffed due to employees who have retired or moved on and those who must quarantine at home for days due to having the virus. Fortunately, here at Cathedral Square we’ve had the support of friends, donors, board members and current staff members at all levels who have pitched in to help whenever and wherever there has been a need.
