Here is Renee's interview with Mayor Erin Stewart of New Britain.
She shares great information about the New Britain Recovers initiative, which addresses homelessness, addiction, and youth prevention in the community.
Mayor Stewart recently joined a team of local social services providers to announce the re-launch of New Britain Recovers. The newly rebranded New Britain Recovers is a social services initiative aimed at addressing homelessness, addiction, and youth prevention.
This group originally stemmed from various City task forces and committees focusing on social service initiatives. The relaunch of New Britain Recovers is a holistic approach to ensure resident needs are met, gaps in services are filled, and support systems are in place. The City’s Opioid Task Force, Homelessness plan, and Local Prevention Council have all come together under the New Britain Recovers umbrella.
As the needs of the New Britain community evolved it became evident that there was a necessity for an all-encompassing social services initiative to be coordinated in order to assist vulnerable populations and support City youth in a more efficient way. Eliminating redundancies and increasing access to a wide range of resources within the City of New Britain makes receiving help much easier for those who need it.
