According to Sarahi Almonte, Community Organizer at United Connecticut Action for Neighborhoods, or UCAN, the Department of Social Services is doing a poor job of providing services and supports to our most vulnerable residents.

Due to an administrative error at DSS, about 20,000 residents were left without key services (medical, social supports) in June.

Did you know that Connecticut's DSS has been sued because of its poor performance?

Listen to this interview to learn more, and to hear how it's affecting our residents with mental health problems in particular.

UCAN is planning a rally on Tuesday, July 17, at 8:30am at DSS, 25 Sigourney Street, Hartford, CT.
