History of CRT

In 1962, a group of community-minded leaders came together to draft a plan for improving the living conditions in Hartford and the surrounding towns. In 1963, the group incorporated as the Community Renewal Team of Greater Hartford. CRT has grown to become the largest nonprofit human service agency in Connecticut. Today CRT offers a broad-based network of innovative, high quality programs and services. The lives of more than 130,000 people in 75 towns and cities are touched by the Agency each year.
