Angela, CFC leader, preparing materials for CFC event.

Since its founding in 1978 UCAN’s main focus and activity has been empowering people through community organizing. UCAN has developed over twenty community organizing groups and provided assistance and training to dozens more.

UCAN has also developed several statewide coalitions including United Seniors in Action and the Caring Families Coalition. Today most of UCAN’s organizing work is centered in the Caring Families Coalition, a project of UCAN organizing people in Connecticut so that every resident has access to quality and affordable health care.
