120 Years of Kurn Hattin Homes for Children (and Counting)

“When you learn, teach; when you get, give.”
~Maya Angelou

Since 1894, Kurn Hattin Homes has continued to provide a stable, loving home for thousands of children in need. Throughout its 120-year history, this small non-profit residential school has stood on a Vermont hillside, growing deeper roots and weathering even the most challenging economic times in our nation, all while relying continuously on charitable donations.

As a result, families and children have always been able to rely on Kurn Hattin’s stability, dependability, and constancy during times when they needed help.  And if Kurn Hattin’s Co-Executive Director Connie Sanderson has something to say about it, that won’t ever change.

After 25 years at Kurn Hattin, and maintaining the same devotion to her work and passion for helping children in need, Connie herself is an excellent representative of the type of consistency and caring it takes to fulfill Kurn Hattin's mission of transforming lives.

We recently interviewed Connie about her work in her former role as Director of Development and what she believes has been the secret behind Kurn Hattin’s continued stability, when so many other non-profit children's service organizations across the country have suffered setbacks in times of economic uncertainty.  And as the current Co-Executive Director, we asked Connie to speak about what’s next for Kurn Hattin after this first 120 years…That’s no secret, she said, "120 more, of course!”
