Addressing the Issues that Matter to our Community

Summer Programs

Farmers Market Coupons

Urban Alliance provides thousands of coupons every year for fresh produce at Hartford Farmer's Markets and a collection of other useful resources and program information. You can pick up a resource bag every Monday (9:30 am-12:30 pm) in July at the UA Office. (62 Village Street, East Hartford)

Basic Needs

Food Insecurity

Hartford has been called a food desert. Urban Alliance is working with Network Partners to help change that - providing training and resources, launching the Farmers Market Access Program, coordinating pop-up Food Distributions and pioneering ways to get nutritious food into the hands of those who need it most.

Physical Health

Health Screenings & Information

Urban Alliance coordinates health screenings, informational tables, and other events to support health and wellness in our communities.

Children & Youth

Education Inequity

Urban Alliance is working to help coordinate needs and organizations that are able to meet them, freeing teachers and school administration to focus on the work of educating the next generation.

Returning Citizens

Second Chance Programs

Many returning citizens struggle to find employment, make ends meet and build a healthy network of support. Successful reentry relies on a variety of people and resources. Urban Alliance is working with churches and ministries to develop programs and provide resources to returning citizens.

Mental & Emotional Health

Mental Health Support

Urban Alliance offers training, community and support to professional counselors, community organizations, and church programs that provide mental health support.
