Last year, Cromwell residents benefited from Middlesex United Way initiatives and programs provided by our funding partners such as:
- 144 Youth were served through the Cromwell Early Childhood Council. This is part of Middlesex United Way ‘s school readiness initiative, which supports local Early Childhood Councils and is working with school systems, early childcare providers, and parents throughout Middlesex County to identify and assist children 3 to 5 years of age who have social and emotional problems before they enter kindergarten. The programs assist children to become school ready and educate their parents about the important role they play in their child’s earliest years.
- 125 Cromwell children were enrolled in Kids Korner at the Northern Middlesex YMCA, and 98% of parents say the program has helped them maintain their employment.
- 896 Cromwell residents called United Way 2-1-1, a toll-free statewide helpline that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- 304 residents received support from the Women & Families Center’s Sexual Assault Crisis Services, which offers support services and support groups for survivors of sexual violence and their loved ones.
- 102 boys and 210 girls participated in the Boy Scouts of America, Connecticut Rivers Council, and the Girls Scouts of Connecticut, respectively.
- 21 Cromwell residents were served by The Connection Counseling Centers, licensed outpatient substance abuse and mental health treatment centers.
- 3 Cromwell families at risk of homelessness remained in their homes thanks to one-time assistance through the Middlesex County Coalition on Housing & Homelessness Prevention Fund.
- 5 Cromwell residents stayed at The Connection’s Eddy Shelter, which provides emergency shelter for adult men and women as well as resources and referrals to prevent and end homelessness.
