INTERCOMMUNITY: has been providing primary care, mental health and addiction services to the greater Hartford region for over 40 years.  They operate two community health centers, one in Hartford and one in East Hartford.  They offer adults and children easy access to a large group of highly skilled and compassionate providers who address all health care needs, regardless of one's ability to pay.  They operate the state of CT's largest detox center and also operate multiple residential programs where people are given a safe and supportive environment where they can heal, recover and maintain their health over time.  Many of their residential clients come with nothing but the clothes on their back.  A donation of knitted hats, scarves and mittens would be so appreciated for the colder months ahead.   They are a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization. And encourage you to check out their Facebook page and website: www.intercommunityct.org They  have 6 residential houses, Recovery House, Coventry House, Detox Care, Intensive and Intermediate Care all located in Hartford, Clayton House in Glastonbury and Community Foundations in East Hartford.  Although their census changes daily, below are some recent numbers of those who are in their 6 residential programs: 180 adults: 113 men and 67 women + 9 children (4 yrs & younger)
