Sergio Colon, WHITE RIVER JUNCTION - Central Vermont Community Action Council Recognition

Sergio Colon moved to White River Junction with his two adopted sons after his community in Port Charlotte, Florida was devastated by Hurricane Charlie in 2004. A single father working hard to make ends meet, Sergio at one point was forced to move his family to a homeless shelter in Vermont. Yet even while his family relied on social services to get by, he volunteered for multiple organizations just as he had always done in Florida. Sergio has since returned to college to work on his psychology degree and is currently looking for a job in human services so he can continue to help people who are struggling.
