C.I.D.E.R. is an acronym that stands for Champlain Islanders Developing Essential Resources, Inc. As there are many apple orchards in Grand Isle County, it is a very appropriate name.  Even though we don’t sell any, we do, however, get the occasional off-island or out-of-state visitor coming into the office looking to purchase some apple cider.

C.I.D.E.R.’s mission is to develop and foster resources that enable the people of Grand Isle County, Vermont to live in their community with dignity.  C.I.D.E.R. accomplishes this by providing direct services and collaborating with other individuals and groups.  C.I.D.E.R. feels a special responsibility to elders and persons with disabilities.

The values that guide C.I.D.E.R. are to be: Caring, Creative, Client Based, Cost Effective and Community Based.

C.I.D.E.R. partners with the Franklin-Grand Isle County United Way
