Connection Inc Mothers Retreat
Groton, CT. 06340
The agency was formed by social advocates Kchen Coley and Nancy Flanner in 1972 as a community response to the devastation being wrought on families by the problems of abuse, neglect, addiction, and crime. Beginning with our flagship program, Connection House, a halfway house located in Middletown, The Connection has since been a leader in creating effective, community-based treatment programs. We have found that services provided in the community contribute to the well-being of the entire community. We are proud of a long history of innovation. Many of our programs have been the first of their kind in the state. Examples are Liberty Commons, the first supportive housing program in Connecticut; our Center for the Treatment of Problem Sexual Behavior, a nationally-recognized program that promotes public safety by treating sex offenders; and Supportive Housing for Families, an unique program that seeks to reunite children with their parents. We have a strong history of working in true partnership with our primary funding sources - Connecticut's Department of Children and Families, Court Support Services Division, Department of Correction, Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services, and others - to develop, test, and implement innovative solutions to complex human problems.
