Putney Family Services
cropped_clinic_sign-7444403_std Putney Family Services developed from a conversation between concerned citizens and the school principal and counselor who saw the need to address the factors that were inhibiting student learning and success. These factors were many including poverty and hunger. Over a year of planning and discussions, Putney Family Services began serving the community at large with the mission to “identify and address the factors that promote the healthy development of children”.  The programs that serve our mission are ever evolving so as to better serve our community.

In addition to their services PFS helps run the  Thursday Night Free Health Clinic 79 Main St. Putney, VT 05346
