The DREAM Program, a Village Mentoring organization that partners college student mentors with youth from affordable housing neighborhoods across Vermont, is excited to welcome a new member to the Vermont Committee of our Board of Directors. Laurel Chen is a Continuum of Care Support Specialist at Vermont State Housing Authority, supporting the work of statewide and local homeless coalitions to prevent and end homelessness. She has been involved with DREAM in a variety of ways for the last seven years, beginning as a UVM DREAM mentor and most recently making a short film about a mentee’s experience in DREAM. Laurel embodies DREAM’s core values and will surely be an asset to our Board. She currently lives in Burlington, VT.
