On Thursday, May 17th, 2018, the Children’s Center of Hamden celebrated their 185th Anniversary with an evening reception at the University of New Haven, Bartels Campus Center

A wonderful time was had by all who attended. The food was fabulous, the silent auction a success and the icing on the cake was when the honorable Coach Jim Calhoun spoke to attendees on the work he has done to support and mentor youth.

Thanks to all who supported this celebration! The Agency received over $30,000 to help enhance and expand the vocational training of our students in areas focusing on horticulture, culinary, carpentry and media productions.
