Your Community Foundation provides a safety net for low-income residents who are experiencing hardships due to unexpected illnesses, accidents and other life-changing events and are in need of financial assistance.

Through the Caleb J. Camp Fund, Foundation staff work with local social service agencies to provide grant checks to service providers, such as utility companies, landlords, or contractors for residents of Winsted.

Without your generous gift, I would not have been able to pay June's rent. After three months, I am happy to say that I am well on my way to recovery and have just returned to work
