It’s moving day!
For nearly 25 years, the Center has worked to ensure that everyone in Connecticut has equal access to the housing of their choice. Now, for the first time, we have a home to call our own!
Today, the Center is moving out of our longtime Hartford office at 221 Main Street and into our very own building at 60 Popieluszko Court (don’t worry – it’s going to take us a while to remember how to spell it, too).
It may be just around the corner, but this move is a huge change for the Center. When we moved into our previous office nearly twenty years ago, the Center had a staff of three. Today, we have a staff of fifteen and reach thousands of Connecticut residents each year. Our conference room couldn’t fit our entire staff, and we had nowhere to host trainings or community events. Now, we’ll have the space we need to meet with clients privately, host fair housing and foreclosure prevention classes, and yes, even sit together for those monthly staff meetings!
We’re proud to make this investment in Hartford’s vibrant Sheldon/Charter Oak neighborhood and excited to be a part of the ongoing redevelopment of the old Capewell Horse Nail Factory complex. (Update: thanks to Ken Gosselin from the Hartford Courant for covering the building purchase!).
The new office opens on Monday, April 23rd. Here’s to the next chapter of the Center’s work!
