Mission

The mission of the Connecticut Association for Human Services, Inc., is to end poverty and engage, equip and empower all families in Connecticut to build a secure future. In order to achieve our mission, CAHS works hand-in-hand with advocates, service providers, private citizens, businesses, labor, policymakers, and government agencies. CAHS has taken the lead statewide in promoting family economic security policies and strategies that empower low-income working families to achieve financial stability, including improved access to basic needs, development of a system of quality early care and education, and effective investments in post-secondary education and job training. Through our efforts, we are able to assist providers and community leaders in linking lower-income residents to existing support programs and services.
