Shelburne, VT 05482-7217


The Orton Family Foundation is focused on building stronger, healthier, and more vibrant small cities and towns across America. Founded in Vermont in 1995, the foundation devoted more than a decade to working with towns to develop a community planning and development method that empowers residents to shape the future of their communities. Community Heart & Soul® projects are underway across the country from Maine to Washington state creating positive change that is resident-driven, inclusive, and sustainable, and recognizes the value in the unique character of each place and the people who live there. Community Heart & Soul is a catalyst for change that leads to a brighter future based on what matters most to everyone. Here are examples of change in Heart & Soul towns: Economies have been strengthened; New, and more people, including youth, become involved in the community; Volunteerism grows; Trust is built and divides are bridged; Partnerships are created; and Historic sites are preserved.
