Volunteers are currently needed to transport elderly Valley residents to medical appointments.
In 1965, local officials
created TEAM, Inc. to combat poverty in the region and to help low-income
families increase their self-sufficiency. Today, TEAM manages over
a dozen programs that seek to improve the lives of economically
vulnerable families. With its central office in Derby, the agency
is an integral part of the regional social safety net. TEAM provides
both direct service and referrals to other area agencies. A private,
non-profit corporation, TEAM gives financial assistance, training,
and supportive services to over 4,000 families in the region each
year. Customers generally remain the poor, but the client base also
includes parents, day care home providers, and frail elderly. TEAM,
Inc. is one of twelve Community Action Agencies in Connecticut and
one of about 1,000 nationwide.
The Original Antonio's and TEAM, Inc. announce that May 9th, 2013 is Meals on Wheels night from 4-9pm. During that Thursday evening, Antonio's will donate 20% of dinner proceeds to TEAM's Meals on Wheels program. Click here for additional information and flyer.
