40 Years of Serving our Community!

Thank you, members of the Community Foundation family, for working with us towards a healthy, thriving, sustainable Eastern Connecticut with greater equity for all.

End Child Poverty Now

Our Vision:

Our nonprofit advocacy collaborative envisions a thriving and economically robust Connecticut, where no child experiences the debilitating effects of poverty. We believe that every child deserves access to basic necessities, quality education, and a nurturing environment that fosters their physical, emotional, and intellectual growth. We engage with lawmakers and policy influencers to promote and enact policies that address the root causes of child poverty, including income inequality, access to healthcare, safe and affordable homes, and quality education.
