Middletown WORKS

The Working Cities Initiative, Middletown WORKS, is based on a collaborative leadership model, consisting of 20 partners co-led by Middlesex United Way and The Connection, Inc.  Middletown WORKS is different than other initiatives because we bring together residents and business owners to improve the City of Middletown. This initiative was formed with funding from the Working Cities Challenge grant program administered by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. The City of Middletown was chosen as our target because despite Middletown's culture of collaboration and diversity, a high level of disparity and poverty exists in the City.
