Covenant to Care for Children channels the generosity of caring and faithful people to advocate for, and provide direct assistance to Connecticut’s children who are neglected, abused and/or impoverished.
Covenant to Care for Children works to create a future where Connecticut’s children have caring families and safe places to live, and all people of faith demonstrate their own personal commitment to the welfare of children.
The Appropriations Committee released their budget yesterday, and I’m happy to report that funding for CCC was restored.
This is a very good a sign, however, it is not over yet. The Appropriations Committee budget represents the ‘second’ phase of the budget process. The legislature and Governor Malloy will now negotiate the final version of the budget, before the close of the regular session on June 3.
Thank you for contacting your legislators and mobilizing individuals in your network to do the same. We will keep you informed as the process continues and let you know if we need you to make some more calls and/or emails. Right now, however, thank you again for your support of CCC. Together, we will continue to provide goods and services to the children of Connecticut who are abused, neglected and/or impoverished.

$5 Backpack Challenge:
It is June already and Covenant to Care for Children is preparing for backpacks. Last year, we sponsored 559 kids with backpacks. This year, we will match and surpass this number. Humbly, we are asking our supporters, churches, community members and subscribers to help us with our $5 Backpack Challenge. Simply, $5 will provide and sponsor a child with a backpack.
