The Connecticut Association for Human Services (CAHS), a division of Advancing CT Together (ACT), changes the lives of low-income children and families across Connecticut by pioneering pathways from poverty to opportunity and from financial insecurity to capability and success.
CAHS uses data and research to inform our policy agenda. CAHS partners with more than 100 policy and program organizations statewide, including fellow nonprofit advocates and trusted community-based service providers. Together, we develop and share new knowledge, advocate for change, build networks, and mobilize coalitions that empower thousands of Connecticut residents every year with the confidence, support, and tools they need to map their journeys forward.
Our goal is, as it has been since 1910, nothing short of the elimination of poverty in Connecticut.
