Covid-19: How Anti-Poverty Agency CRT is Helping CT During this Crisis. Interview with Jason Black, Communications Director of the Community Renewal Team.
CRT’s programs and services for people in Hartford and Middlesex Counties continue to remain available at this time, although with some modifications.
·For example, Meals on Wheels is doing drop-offs outside recipients front doors – we conduct wellness checks by phone, and/or conversation through the doors … The community café lunches for seniors are now grab-and-go meals, instead of sit-down options.
·Energy Assistance offices are closed to walk-ins, but we are still assisting people via phone and email, or postal mail. Fuel deliveries can still be arranged until the end of this month.
·Our homeless shelters in Hartford (McKinney) and in East Hartford (for families) are still open for the residents staying with us.
·Our assisted living facility, The Retreat, is open for the residents – and at capacity – but no visitors at this time, unless preapproved.
·Our 3 preschool locations in Hartford remain open at this time for families that need those services!
