Gifts of Love and Community Farm of Simsbury

About Us

When times are toughest, the working poor who don’t qualify for government assistance are often hit the hardest.  National reports indicate that approximately 29% of food insecure individuals are above 185% of the Federal poverty level.  In Connecticut, a family of four earning more than $41,347 does not qualify for food assistance.  Furthermore, according to the Connecticut Association for Human Services Pathways From Poverty for Connecticut’s Children, nearly one in four Connecticut children live in families where parents work yet struggle to afford the basics, including food, rent, utilities and medicine.

The individuals and families Gifts of Love and Community Farm of Simsbury serve often face a short-term financial crisis due to reduced work hours, illness, divorce, death of a spouse/mate, exiting an abusive relationship, or a significant unexpected increase in expenses.  By helping clients meet their most basic needs through food, clothing, housewares, linens and furniture, we enable them to focus on putting their lives back in order and attaining financial independence.  Clients can visit the Agency for services once per month for up to one year. 

Gifts of Love and Community Farm of Simsbury's Programs include:

Annually, Gifts of Love and Community Farm of Simsbury distribute more than $300,000 worth of goods and services to neighbors in need. No other agency in the area has as extensive an array of basic need services. Over the past 29 years, Gifts of Love has directly touched the lives of thousands of people in the Greater Hartford community, including residents of more than 30 Connecticut towns.
