Colley St. Fire Victims
Please, click the donate button.
As many of us are aware, this past Monday morning a large blaze in a three-story apartment building on Colley Street displaced more than 30 people and killed a man in his 60s. When facing tragedy the Waterbury community is resilient, caring, and selfless. It is time, once again, for Waterbury residents to rise up and assist these families during their moment of greatest need.
The Hispanic Coalition of Greater Waterbury, Inc., is leading a fundraising effort to collect monetary donations to assist those affected by the fire. The agency will serve as the financial fiduciary of the funds. 100% of funds donated will be distributed to the families.
Please, donate! Gracias

RIBA Aspira Center
Waterbury joins Hartford, Danbury, East Harford and Middletown as winners of Boston Fed’s Working Cities Challenge competition.
Waterbury’s RIBA ASPIRA will address the economic and racial/ethnic inequities that have devalued this once vibrant South End neighborhood (River Baldwin) by creating a strong, resident-driven, civic infrastructure, realigning/relocating job training services to increase resident access, and revising child care decision making policies to be more equitable insuring adequate access for neighborhood children and families.
Focusing on one neighborhood provides an opportunity to advance changes in systems and policies and pilot a resident engagement model that can be replicated in other city neighborhoods.

Youth Prevention L.A.C.E.
This program is designed with two principals in mind:
Firstly, socio-economic factors do not need to determine a child’s scholastic success.
Secondly, healthy relationships are a meaningful way to guide adolescents towards their goals.
It is the intention of this program that Waterbury youth foster the skills necessary to promote professional, academic and personal growth through the four pillars of Leadership, Athletics, Community (outreach) and Education.
