CCARC was fortunate to receive a state grant of $249,000 from Governor Malloy’s
bonding allocation to help nonprofit human services agencies for capital and
infrastructure improvements. We know by this support that the Governor recognizes
that we are the safety net for the most vulnerable citizens in our community. A testament
to the statewide need were the over $101 million in requests for the $20 million available
for these grants.
I want to do a special “shout out” to Representative Betty Boukus for helping to
make a dream happen for one of our residents, Kristine. She learned that for the past
three years Kristine wanted to meet Governor Malloy to thank him for his work. Betty
made this happen and coordinated an opportunity for Kristine to meet with the Governor
and share her thanks directly with him. It was quite a special moment for her and for all
of us who saw this happen.

After a very long winter, we are all ready for spring flowers and warm
sunshine! Although it was cold, it was also quite an active season to
advocate on behalf of CCARC and the people we support. CCARC was
pleased to again host our annual Legislative Breakfast collaboratively
with four other agencies (BARC, CMHA, CW Resources and
Wheeler Clinic) to share the important message that the State
of Connecticut needs to “pay for the cost of care.” Connecticut
should be proud of the system of care that our nonprofits provide
to people with disabilities—it has been cost effective and efficient.
Anne L. Ruwet,
Most importantly, we provide quality services within the community
Chief Executive Officer
where the people we support live and work. In order to sustain this
quality of service, the state needs to recognize the value and fund it appropriately. This
message was resonated by the testimonies of several of our families and individuals
who receive our services sharing their personal stories. In addition to this event, we have
provided verbal and written testimonies through this legislative session on bills that could
support or hinder the work we do every day. Our voices, when united, are powerful and
important to our state legislators who truly listen and want to make the right decisions for
their constituents.
Enjoy the warming spring and my personal thanks to each of you who help support
our CCARC.
