In just a few days, the Connecticut Junior Republic will provide special festivities, gifts and holiday dinners for the young people and families at the following CJR Programs locations:   

• Waterbury Programs and Family Support Center
• Danbury
• East Hartford – Group Home
• East Hartford – Teen Outreach Program
• Litchfield: 
Residential Programs and Cable Academic & Vocational Education Center
• Middletown/Meriden Family Support Center (located in Meriden)
• New Britain Family Support Center
• New Haven Family Support Center
• Torrington Program
• Winchester Group Home

Many of the children and families helped by our organization have limited financial resources and even modest holiday celebrations can stretch the family budget to the breaking point.  The festivities and gifts that we are able to provide for our boys and girls with assistance from generous CJR friends and supporters help us light up the season for these youngsters with warmth, gifts, holiday foods and celebrations that will become happy memories cherished over a lifetime.  

Contributions made to CJR at this time of year help us share the spirit of the season with the more than 1,400 boys, girls and families who are helped annually by our programs and services in 11 locations throughout Connecticut.

By making a generous gift to support our holiday events, you will help provide festive meals, activities, gifts of warm winter clothing and toys for children and families who may not otherwise experience the joy, gifts and special traditions of the holiday season. 

To make a donation using our print-out form, or by credit card visit
If you would like your donation to “stay local,” or to be used for a specific CJR location, just let us know on the online or print-out donation forms.

Thank you and best wishes for your own special holidays and New Year.

Executive Director
