"Some of these individuals have real
problems, but they're trying to get
back on the straight and narrow. For
example, one fellow fell into the grasp
of alcohol-related problems ... He even
spent some time in jail. But he's doing
the right thing, he's filing his tax return,
and we want to encourage him to stay
on track by helping him do the right
thing," Merrick said.
In total, the four Windham County
VITA clinics ran in Putnam (21 clinics,
84 total hours), Stafford (21 clinics, 95
total hours), and Willimantic with the
Windham Area Interfaith Missionaries
(WAIM) (22 clinics, 77 total hours) and
the Community Action Agency (50 clin-
ics, 172 total hours).
"This is our first year," Rick noted. "I
guess you could say it was us cau-
tiously dipping our oar in the water.
We'll evaluate our participation, and
decide if next year we might expand
into another county as well, possibly
New London."
