For over 15 years Hartford City Mission (HCM) programs have met the needs of underserved North Hartford families and children through character development, academic support, and building connections with families, schools, and local churches to create a successful life path for youth growing up in a culture of generational poverty.
Noah After School is a free daily program that consists of homework time, team building activity time, and a Bible-based character development lesson. Each student is paired with a consistent volunteer mentor/tutor. Healthy snacks are provided each day. HCM operates 3 locations at host sites: Ebenezer Temple on Main St., Glory Chapel on Greenfield St., and Antioch Baptist Church on Nelson St.

Nehemiah After School is a free daily program which provides homework assistance, Christian character development, and teaches the power within each child by connecting them to their historical greatness and providing strategies for overcoming life's challenges. The program affirms each child because we understand that the middle school years are a critical juncture of youth development as children become more self-aware, recognizing their own potential and the world around them.
Young Life provides a fun, yet safe space for teens and young adults in Hartford to connect and grow in intentional community. This is accomplished through Christian character development, training through community initiatives and connecting members to community resources for work experience. Students also learn about the social, political, and economic structures that must be overcome to advance the community and society as a whole. Our goal is that through Young Life, young men and women will be empowered to by the next generation of “Transformational Leaders” in our community.
