Project VISION Overview
Project VISION is a diverse coalition of over 300 social and health service agencies and organizations, schools, colleges, business organizations, City of Rutland municipal administrators, local, county, state, and federal probation, parole and law enforcement agencies, faith-based groups, volunteers, and neighbors.
We are all united to address the fundamental social and public health issues facing our community with the goal of making Rutland one of the healthiest, safest, and happiest places in America.
Underscoring our coalition’s collaborative spirit is the understanding that the challenges facing our community are more significant than the scope of any single organization or agency. If we want to address and resolve the social and public health issues of the greater Rutland region, we must all coordinate each of our efforts. We recognize that meaningful change requires a new, comprehensive, and more integrated collaboration among the many agencies and organizations serving in the Rutland region.

Who We Are
We are a coalition of over 400 partners in the Rutland area. We believe in Rutland – that’s why we strive to create an environment of collaboration where each of us can work together to expand community engagement, build great neighborhoods, and improve public health.
