Major Partner

At HomeFront, partnerships are built to last. One long-standing and valued collaborator has been the Office for Catholic Social Justice Ministry (OCSJM) of the Archdiocese of Hartford. Since 1994, the OCSJM has been responsible for organizing thousands of volunteers to help revitalize homes and community centers.

OCSJM-supported volunteer teams are comprised of single parishes, multiple parishes from within the same geographic area, and interfaith partners who are joined by local businesses to work on projects demonstrating the greatest recipient need in the Greater Hartford, New Haven and Waterbury regions.

According to the OCSJM, it’s a meaningful partnership in that a community of volunteers walks away from a project with a sense of having helped a neighbor and changed lives for the better, raising spirits and restoring hope, by making essential home repairs for those who are unable to do so on their own.
