Connecticut Co-Act





Is the vision of Community organizer and Church Planter Bob Alonge will endeavor to unite farmers, social service agencies, health and human service agencies, food pantries and concerned citizens to work more efficiently to address the feeding the hungry, homelessness and job development.


Mr. Alonge is  planting Churches/pantries and jobs programs using this model that he developed successfully in MA and CT.

The model of creating new approaches to community development and engagement allows a collaborative and grassroots approach that prioritizes issues, gets results and benefits the most vulnerable members of our community. (the COACT Model) in collaboration with COACT, Pittsfield, MA

We will accomplish this goal by: 



· Working to solve local “DEFICIENCIES” by creating new approaches to community development and engagement

· Connecting existing programs and agencies and working together to decrease the deficiencies established by local demographers

· Showing love and compassion

· Organizing willing people to work together to solve needed goals




A free ‘Community Connection Day’ event will be held on Sunday, June 16th, July 28th, August 17th 12-5pm at the Town Pavilion, Canaan, CT. 

The event is designed to help develop a stronger sense of community in Canaan, CT. and help residents connect to community services

Community Connections Coalition’s goal is to strengthen and increase neighborhood based activities that: empower residents and build partnerships by coordinating resources already in the community, bringing out the voices of the residents and ensuring that the services meet the needs of the people.

This interactive day highlights area community organizations who serve our community.

· What you can expect: Live music, information booths, farmers, yard sales…
