Connecticut Association for Human Services
of Matching Remaining
The Connecticut Association for Human Services improves opportunity and prosperity for Connecticut’s children and families by shaping policies and programs that significantly and measurably reduce poverty and promote a secure future. We are inspired by a belief in shared prosperity and the vision of a Connecticut where all children and families thrive and, regardless of income level, contribute to and share in Connecticut’s growth. Founded in 1910, CAHS is a nonprofit organization committed to ending poverty in Connecticut. In order to achieve our mission, CAHS works hand-in-hand with advocates, service providers, private citizens, businesses, labor, policymakers, and government agencies. CAHS has taken the lead statewide in promoting family economic security policies and strategies that empower low-income working families to achieve financial stability, including improved access to basic needs, development of a system of quality early care and education, and effective investments in post-secondary education and job training. Through our efforts, we are able to assist providers and community leaders in linking lower-income residents to existing support programs and services.
