The Kätchen Coley Society

katchenKätchen Coley, co-founder of The Connection, was a social services pioneer—and a true believer in second chances for those whose lives were negatively impacted by poor choices and circumstances.

Kätchen passed away after a short illness in August 2013. Soon after, The Kätchen Coley Society was created in tribute to Kätchen for her extraordinary vision and values in establishing The Connection in 1972. After more than 40 years of service on The Connection’s Board of Directors, Kätchen (and her family) were delighted to know that The Society will serve as an enduring compass for the organization. Gifts to The Society honor her and further the work in which she passionately believed.

In the short term, gifts to the Kätchen Coley Society will be utilized for Connection client and family events and special needs and for The Connection/environmental improvement initiatives. In the long term, specific projects will be developed to help those The Connection serves that are not funded by our traditional revenue sources. These projects will seek all types and sizes of gifts, including annual, major outright and planned gifts, such as bequests.

The society will stand as a permanent tribute to Kätchen’s values in founding the agency. It will be a powerful platform—utilizing the stories of client rehabilitation and redemption—from which to encourage others to support The Connection’s mission.

The Nancy Smith Homestead Fund

In 2016 Nancy Smith launched The Homestead Fund at The Connection at an afternoon reception in Stamford, Connecticut where Mrs. Smith presented her story and the history of the famous Homestead Inn in Greenwich, Connecticut. The Named Fund will build financial resources dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness and poverty serving Early Childhood families by providing a supportive housing model of care through The Home Works Program.

The Nancy Smith Homestead Fund at The Connection will be the first to respond to this chronic service and housing gap. The Home Works program will support these families with connections to community resources, budgeting skills, vocational support, and educational and parenting support, similar to the ways we help families in nationally-acclaimed Supportive Housing for Families Program®. The overall program goal will be to improve child and family well-being, early childhood education, family stability and self-sufficiency for Head Start families.

For more information about the Home Works Program, you can view our introductory video.
