Happy summer! As we move into a new—yet still challenging—season, we have several important updates for you.

In this edition:

  • The Village is unwavering in our commitment to justice and equity today and always. We've held a series of community meetings, hosted a Facebook Live series on racial trauma and published this op-ed piece detailing our vision.

  • Work that kicked-off just a few months ago to transform a massive warehouse at our Village South facility into an adult behavioral health services wing that will serve thousands of Greater Hartford residents is almost done!

  • The Village is assisting with the U.S. Census to ensure everyone is counted, since people of color—especially children—are historically undercounted, resulting in myriad disadvantages.

  • Relief for taxpayers affected by COVID-19 who take distributions or loans from retirement plans is available, and The Village can help.

We hope you are healthy and well. Remember, we are here for you if you need us.
