Hal Colston, of Essex Junction, is best known as the founder of Good News Garage, the outfit that fixes up donated cars for low-income Vermonters. In 2004 he left Good News Garage. Now he’s got another antipoverty strategy called NeighborKeepers. It operates on the theory that one of the major things holding poor people back is a lack of well-connected friends. He spoke with VPR’s Jane Linholm about the project.
