Family Promise of Central Connecticut Receives $3,000 in Funding from the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal.

New Britain,  October 28th — On October 1, 2021, Family Promise of Central Connecticut received a check in the amount of $3,000 from the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal through its Vicariate Outreach Program.

The much-needed funding will help Family Promise of Central Connecticut continue its mission of providing services to families facing homelessness. Currently, Family Promise of Central Connecticut is serving 13 families with children who are at risk of loosing their housing.

“So many local families are continuing to struggle making ends meet. While there is government help available, it’s not enough and that’s where we come in. We fill in the gaps and we make sure families don’t fall through the cracks in the system,” says Marlaina “Nina” Rodriguez, the Executive Director of Family Promise of Central Connecticut. “This donation came at just the right time! We will be able to assist children and their families so they can remain stability housed.”

Since 1981, the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal has been able to assist tens of thousands of people – regardless of race, religion or color – across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, education, housing, emergency expenses, and in numerous other areas. It is through the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach Program and the generosity of its donors that the Appeal is able to assist a wide array of community-based charities throughout Hartford, New Haven and Litchfield Counties.
