Community

As a responsible local business, Maitri participates in projects and supports foundations for women’s health.

Community Projects

Girls on The Run is a learning program for 8-13 year old girls that teaches life skills through dynamic, conversational-based lessons and running games.  The goal of the program is to encourage girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles and Maitri is happy to support such an important mission.

Dragonheart is a Dragon Boat race which raises money for breast cancer survivors. Each year, Maitri sponsors a boat rowed by labor and delivery staff. As we have many friends and relatives with breast cancer, and have lost several dear friends to this disease, we support efforts to help women with breast cancer.

Cancer Patient Support Foundation is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing and furthering the availability of comprehensive psycho-social services to cancer patients and their families throughout Vermont and Northern NY.

LEED Design: Maitri is proud of our LEED certified building, and our commitment to Green Building and Design. We believe health care providers must provide leadership in environmental issues, to improve the health of our community.

Legislative: Maitri was instrumental in changing a Vermont bill which allowed a midwife, Kristen Werner, to become an equal partner with the physicians in our practice. Prior to passing this bill, a nurse could not become a business partner with a physician in Vermont. We believe the contributions of our nurses and midwives are equal to the contributions of our physicians, and that this should be recognized in our business model.

Other organizations we support:

  • March of Dimes
  • Vermont Refugee Center
  • Vermont Food Bank
  • The Clothes Exchange
