CT OKs $1M for 'r Kids Family Center in New Haven

The State Bond Commission on Friday approved $1 million to expand the 'r Kids Family Center in New Haven, state officials said.

'R Kids provides foster and adoption placement and support services for families who have entered the Department of Children and Families system.

The agency will use the funding to expand visitation, childcare and programming space at its 45 Dixwell Ave. center, officials said.

Members of New Haven's legislative delegation applauded the decision.

"Families are the foundation of our community," said Senate President Pro Tempore Martin M. Looney (D-New Haven). "The 'r Kids Family Center helps promote a strong, healthy New Haven by keeping families together and children in safe, stable homes."
