The multi-site Greater Hartford AJC, operated by KRA for Capital Workforce Partners (CWP), demonstrated its appreciation for the family-support services offered by two vital area organizations through a “Thanks and Giving” food and clothing drive.
Organized by Lydia Santiago, KRA Unit Supervisor, and supported by co-workers in the Hartford Office, one of the drive’s beneficiaries was CT Transition House, an Urban Alliance, Inc. partner that provides clothing, food, housing, and utility assistance to area families.

Lydia reports, “The drive was very successful, and we were able to deliver the non-perishable food goods and warm winter-clothing donations to the two organizations just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday.”
As the CWP workforce-services provider in the North Central Region of Connecticut, diverse education, training, and employment services, are available to eligible Transition House and JFS participants through customized WIOA and TANF programs.
