Your generosity is vital to our work.
The nation’s COVID-19 crisis has deeply affected the lives of thousands of people in Connecticut. As the number of individuals and families receiving our services has grown, your help means more now than ever. Did you know that 20% of working families in our state now live under 200% of the poverty line?
Since 1963, CRT has worked to address challenges such as hunger, homelessness and unemployment, helping thousands of individuals and families take steps toward a healthy and economically stable future. By choosing to donate to CRT, you are taking an active role in working towards providing a stable and successful future for the individuals and families we serve. Also, it’s important to note that CRT uses your donations efficiently: for every dollar we receive, 92.2 cents goes directly to supporting client services in the community.
