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.
Governor Malloy and the Office of Policy & Management (OPM) have recommended eliminating Covenant to Care for Children funding from the State budget.
Covenant to Care for Children (CCC) saves The State of Connecticut millions of dollars every year. By using the small amount of funds provided by the State, we are able to organize 200 faith and/or community based organizations to provide goods and services to DCF involved-children. CCC’s work allows children to stay with their families, find permanent placement or, in some cases, to be reunified with their caregiver(s). Even though CCC has a long history of providing $6.80 of value for every $1 in State funds, the OPM announced that the Governor has cut the $151,000 from the State budget that supports CCC.
