Our staff members are always willing to share their expertise and community members are encouraged to contact us with questions or requests for resources.

We enjoy getting out in the community and you’ll likely find us at a variety of community events including the Hartford Independent Fair, health fairs, career fairs and other events that allow us to talk to residents and get the word out about our services and supports.
