Before you know it, fall will be here and winter weatherization projects will be upon us. COVER Home Repair is a Local First Alliance member that embodies a commitment to seeing our community thrive. This non-profit organization addresses the urgent home repair needs of low-income, disabled and elderly residents of the Upper Valley. Funded by proceeds from their ReCover Store on Main Street in White River Junction, and aided by volunteers, this LFA member strives to bridge the gap between neighbors of diverse economic backgrounds.

“It’s valuable to COVER to be a part of Local First Alliance because there is a shared vision of building community and honoring direct connections in our local economy. These connections make way for lasting relationships to be created and fostered. We value that Local First Alliance gives COVER an avenue to be an active participant in weaving the fabric of a more supportive and conscious local culture.”- Sarah Blum, Volunteer Coordinator, COVER Home Repair.
