CPRF's role is to offer culturally competent services and programs that foster individual and community growth, and create economic opportunities for all. CPRF is a multi-service organization that specializes in providing cost effective programs to the marginalized and disadvantaged residents of Hartford and neighboring communities, in order to help them enter the economic and social mainstream.
The ultimate objective is to see that the people we serve have the skills and competencies needed to succeed in employment, become stable members of their communities and achieve financial sustainability. To reach these goals, CPRF has created models of contextualized vocational programs, comprehensive support services, and re-entry alternatives. Grounded in CPRF's experience that success does not happen in isolation, CPRF offers a system of intervention that enables clients to advance as individuals and contributors to our common life.
