Formerly known as the Community Renewal Team of Greater Hartford, the agency expanded its core service area by taking over the operations of Community Action for Greater Middlesex County in 1999 and became Community Renewal Team, Inc.
The agency has built upon its grassroots foundation to become a broad-based, modern agency, pioneering results-based accountability and holistic case management models for all of its programs and customers.
