Make community nonprofits a priority in reopening Connecticut

More than a half-million people in every Connecticut city and town rely on community nonprofits for services critical to helping them achieve a quality and healthy life.
The Alliance is the statewide association, and the voice of community nonprofits, representing 117,000 Connecticut workers in this vital field. Today, those workers are on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic, feeding the hungry and unemployed, supporting those with disabilities, helping the incarcerated successfully return to their communities and working to ensure continuity of mental health services, every day.
