The Vernon Hunger Action Team (HAT) brings together local government, schools, faith groups, businesses, nonprofit service providers and concerned residents to eliminate the problem of hunger in our community.    We collaborate to maximize available resources and work to identify any gaps in service. Our goal is to provide workable solutions to ensure that no Vernon resident goes hungry.

Programs that Help People in Connecticut has been connecting Connecticut residents to federal, state, and local agencies for over twenty years. Need information? Need Help? Need Services? LOOK INSIDE!

The Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS) updates the program entries and Connecticut Light and Power (CL&P) publishes this booklet. We are grateful to everyone who supplied information for the new edition.

THIS BOOKLET IS A GUIDE, containing brief descriptions of complex programs. Eligibility criteria, services offered, and funding are subject to change. PLEASE CHECK WITH THE ADMINISTERING AGENCY FOR THE MOST UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION.

If you need a particular service but do not see it reflected in any of these pages, you may wish to begin with a call to United Way 2-1-1, described after the table of contents. In addition, every Connecticut town is required to have a Municipal Agent to help senior citizens and most also have a Youth Services Bureau that can link you to groups that could meet the needs of children. You can find these numbers in the blue pages of your phone book.

Many services have income and asset eligibility guidelines. Generally, income is money available to you from an ongoing source. Assets are referred to as other financial resources – a bank account, a home, a car, etc. Don’t assume you are not eligible! Check with the agency that administers the program. If you do not meet the guidelines for service, they should offer you an alternative.

A special note to individuals who have never accessed social services in the past: The on-going recession, with the loss of tens of thousands of jobs and widespread home foreclosures in Connecticut, has necessitated the use of social services by many people who have never had occasion to seek social services before. Navigating the social service system can be confusing and time consuming, even for experienced consumers. For individuals new to this process, it can be difficult to access all of the resources needed for a family at a single agency. To find services to meet a variety of needs, dial 2-1-1, or the Connecticut Association for Human Services or other multi-service agencies listed on page 24 of this book. These agencies can help families access and determine eligibility for multiple programs and public benefits including: SNAP (formerly food stamps), health care, housing, cash assistance and other resources. Accessing benefits may still not be as easy as people would like, but these agencies will do their best to address new and multiple needs.

We would like to hear from you! Please let us know of any services that should be added, deleted or revised. Programs that Help People in Connecticut is updated every two years. Additional copies are available through CL&P or CAHS by written request, and can be downloaded directly from the CAHS website.
