The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc.
The Cancer Care Fund of the Litchfield Hills, Inc. (CCFLH) is a not-for-profit organization created to assist and support cancer patients residing in northwest Connecticut.
The fund supports cancer patients with care, treatment, education and prevention programs and awards financial assistance to patients for emergencies such as food, rent, transportation, utilities, medications and other emergent needs as determined by clinicians or case managers.
The fund began with generous donations but families and patients cared for at The Center for Cancer Care and the Charlotte Hungerford Hospital. It is overseen by a broad-based community Board of Directors that administer the fund and is managed by the Community Foundation of Northwest Connecticut.
Aim For A Better Tomorrow
Aim For A Better Tomorrow is a group of artists, crafts workers, students, educators, business professionals and just friends and neighbors who believe a community is enriched when all of its members, regardless of age, ability, income or life situation have access to any creative process that provides educational and/or therapeutic value for them, and we have the commitment to work for that vision.
The organization started in March 2015. In December 2015 we were accepted as a 501(c)3 charity and were able to provide funding and/or art programming for six nonprofit or public organizations in two states. We have three more organizations for whom we’ve scheduled, or are planning, programming. Every organization with whom we’ve worked provides educational or therapeutic assistance to the members of its community in need, and none of this would have been possible without the wonderful group of talented, caring artists who believe we can, and who go above and beyond to deliver.
