Securing Funds for Our Communities

I am proud to announce last week the State Bond Commission approved over $21.8 million to support several projects in New Britain.

Thanks to this funding, our senior housing facilities, local mental and medical health facilities, and family centers can now move forward with making much-needed improvements so that residents of New Britain may continue to enjoy their services for many more years.

Will You Open Your Home to a Child in Need?

On any given day in Connecticut, there are nearly 4,000 children in foster care.

Hundreds more need a place to call home and 50 to 60 in our community alone need safe, loving foster and adoptive homes.

You can make a difference in the life of a child by becoming a parent through the Wheeler Clinic Foster Care program. The clinic provides high-level, 24-hour support to families and youth and has resources to assist families in meeting the needs of children placed in their homes.
