About Healthy Homes of Bennington
Southwestern Vermont Health Care and The Bank of Bennington established Healthy Homes for Bennington L3C to revitalize single-family homes in downtown neighborhoods. The idea behind the organization is that families thrive and live healthier lives in a safe living environment. The goal for Healthy Homes of Bennington is to renovate 10-15 homes over the next five years. There's been a lot of research done how healthy environments impact the health of family members. It's tied into the social-economics.
Hale Resources, LLC., was the General Contractor who hired all local sub-contractors to complete the rehabilitation of the first two houses in the year of 2016-2017. In December of 2018, Hale Resources started the rehabilitation of the fourth house that Healthy Homes of Bennington has purchased.
