The Connection is a non-profit, women-led organization dedicated to enhancing lives and fostering community. The programs and services offered bring together individuals of diverse economic circumstances, race, gender, age, sexual orientation, culture, and physical and mental abilities to acquire skills, build self-esteem, and, through association, develop the respect that eliminates prejudice.
The Connection’s commitment to community service programs is particularly outstanding. By serving newcomers to our country, physical rehabilitative patients, and children and adults with special needs, The Connection meets the needs of many different constituencies not reached by other agencies. We have a rich tradition of providing much needed community service programs such as English as a Second Language, special needs swimming and recreation, AfterSchool Enrichment, cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation and support services for women with breast and gynecological cancers. In addition, The Connection offers a Scholarship Program, which assures that everyone can participate in our programs, regardless of their economic circumstance.
