  • Description: Gifts of Love provides basic need services, such as food, clothing, furniture, household items and energy assistance, to individuals and families living primarily throughout Greater Hartford. To qualify for our programs, in most cases, people need to be working or enrolled in school beyond high school. Designed to be basic needs services to assist during a temporary financial crisis, clients can receive assistance from Gifts of Love for up to one year. When times are toughest, the working poor who don't qualify for many government assistance programs are often hit the hardest. The families that are served by Gifts of Love's programs face a short-term crisis in their lives due to reduced working hours, illness, divorce, death of a spouse/mate, domestic abuse, or a significant unexpected increase in expenses. By helping clients meet their individual and families's most basic needs - such as food on the table, adequate clothing, or a bed in which to sleep - we enable them to focus on putting their lives back in order and regaining their independence. Food Pantry: Enables clients to “shop” for food, paper goods, personal hygiene items, meat and fresh vegetables once per month by appointment.
