From an early childhood learning center for preschoolers to academic support and truancy prevention programs for teens, and programs for parents such as financial stability and parenting education, The Village provides myriad services – in schools, community family centers and in homes – to strengthen families.

Basic Human Needs Programs

The Village offers food pantries through its Family Resource Centers in four Hartford schools: Burns Latino Studies Academy, John C. Clark Jr. Elementary & Middle School, Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School and SAND Elementary School. Clothing, furniture and other items may also be provided as needed for families in crisis.

Access services
The food pantries are open to students and their families and are also available to community members – some locations require a referral. For more information, contact the Family Resource Center in each school.
