Commissioner’s Message


to the Department of Disabilities, Aging, and Independent Living’s website. I hope that you find the information and resources you need here; if not, please reach out to let us know how we can help.  We are now over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, and the light at the end of this long tunnel is drawing nearer each day.  I am deeply grateful to DAIL’s community partners and our talented staff for their ongoing dedication and hard work throughout this unprecedented time in unflagging support of our mission: to make Vermont the best place in which to grow old or to live with a disability – with dignity, respect, and independence.  It is truly an honor to be part of the important work that we do here at Team DAIL, and I look forward to working to ensure that our programs remain strong in support of the many Vermonters we serve – and learning how we can become even stronger as we emerge from this pandemic, together.
