Residents tell Stories of Success 
Yajaira & her daughter enjoy Stonington Acres
At the core of our work are the many residents whose lives are better because of the beautiful homes and vibrant communities built by our community development partners. As we end this busy year, Hartford and Connecticut Statewide LISC have five new Success Stories to share.
In Hartford's Sheldon/Charter Oak neighborhood, residents of Stonington Acres find new opportunities for jobs, education, outdoor recreation and family connection. In Asylum Hill, families find new homes in renovated historic properties that are bringing new life to key neighborhood gateways. Residents of Park Terrace, in Frog Hollow, enjoy remodeled apartments with easy access to shopping, transportation, jobs and a beautiful park. In Litchfield, a unique home in a converted historic firehouse offers accessibility, security and space for an extended family. In Kent, a farmhouse in foreclosure was transformed into rental homes that provide healthy and independent life styles for residents. Please join us in celebrating these beautiful homes and wonderful people.
