Our COVID-19 Response

Creating safe volunteers.
Building a Healthy & Resilient Connecticut

Connecticut non-profits provide critical social services to the most vulnerable, including the elderly, children, and people living with disabilities. Seniors and parents make up over 50% of our volunteers.

With key non-profit personnel and volunteers forced to stay home during the COVID-19 outbreak, MWH is proud to serve as the fiduciary for a statewide communication intervention to create safe volunteers and life-long community advocates.

Stories of H.O.P.E.

"MWH has answered one of my prayers."

-Keita, fall survivor, Moving With H.O.P.E. since 2018

Keita lost 14 years of her life looking for affordable rehab. A month after her accident, Keita’s therapy benefits dropped dramatically. Years later, she moved to Florida for a clinical research trial. She saw some progress, but the cost of living was too high and transportation was difficult, so Keita returned to Bridgeport to be with her family. She had little to no rehab for nearly a decade. 

Keita found MWH in 2018. “I want to stand, fall in love, have my own house, and live a happy, normal life,” she says. “MWH is helping me reach these goals. They are one of the best nonprofits going.” Learn More >>
