Working as a community partner to empower people to succeed
CRT combines research, compassion and accountability to assess local needs, devise programs and identify funding sources to turn plans into reality. We are a strong leader for community change, working with a broad-based network of partners to offer innovative, high-quality programs that serve families, youth, seniors, veterans, women and others throughout Central Connecticut.

… serving communities by listening to their concerns and working together to solve social problems.
… fostering independence and skill-building through a diverse network of programs that encourage people to take steps toward long-term economic stability.
… putting people first with services that address human needs by building on the unique strengths of individuals, who can then create opportunities for themselves and their families.
… taking a holistic approach to case management through our “Steps to Success” case management system that addresses multiple needs and challenges in a single plan to effectively meet the needs of the people we serve.
… conducting research to identify unmet needs and underserved populations in our communities.
