Covenant to Care for Children

Helping Connecticut's Children in Need

Hartford, CT   |  www.covenanttocare.org

Mission

Covenant to Care for Children provides a safety net for abused, neglected or impoverished children in Connecticut by providing essential support in moments that are critical for a child’s ability to thrive and a family’s ability to stay together. We fulfill this mission by partnering with State agencies, faith-based communities, and other organizations that share our dedication to improving the lives and futures of at-risk children in Connecticut. Through our collaborative system of program delivery, we mobilize the generosity of caring individuals and leverage the resources of social service agencies to provide direct assistance and critical goods to families struggling to meet the basic needs of their children.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Adopt A Social Worker

The Adopt A Social Worker program  (AASW) is the largest and oldest of our programs.
 
Faith-based or community organizations agree to a covenant in which they partner with a particular social worker to, as far as is possible, provide for the necessary and special items needed for all of the children in that social worker’s caseload. This augments the provisions of the State, often assuring greater stability in the life of a child.
 
The program works with over 200 faith- and community-based organizations and over 2,000 volunteers and donors. On a yearly basis, as many as 24,000 children are provided with beds, dressers, school backpacks and other goods valued at over $500,000.    
Other states have successfully copied this distinctive and preventative model, but ours remains the most comprehensive and successful.

Population(s) Served

Critical Goods is our response to the needs of families who are at-risk of losing their children or who are being reunified with their children and must have certain material goods before that can happen: beds, appliances, cribs, and household items.
 
We assist children and youth in their development and growth by helping them overcome the challenges of poverty and emotional distress. Donations of emergency and nonemergency goods are collected and delivered to families in an effort to foster safe and nurturing home environments for the children.
 
During any given fiscal year, we deliver an average of $115,000 worth of usable goods to families in need. On a yearly basis, around 500 children are provided with beds, dressers, a table to eat at or do homework on and other goods that they too often go without.

Population(s) Served

CCC manages a food pantry in collaboration with Kensington Congregational Church serving clients in the New Britain area. The program assists Department of Children and Families clients through home delivery of a two week supply of non-perishable foods as well as client selected foods purchased from local grocers.
 
Through these collaborations, every year, an average of 600 children and 250 adults receive emergency food assistance alleviating the serious problem of hunger.

Population(s) Served

The Children's Enrichment Fund is a program responding to unusual requests that enhance our efforts to care and nurture children and youth.
 
This program provides a small fund designed to accept donor designated funds for the special needs of children. Social workers can request these funds for the needs of children that are not met by the State Government departments, other agencies, or our AASW Program. Examples are camp experiences, haircuts, lessons, tutoring, special books, or other aids.
