About Us

CTE is the Community Action Agency serving the Greater Stamford, Connecticut area. It is the mission of CTE to counter the basic causes of poverty in the region by making available services and activities which help reduce the physical, economic, anbd psychological barriers to self-sufficiency for low-income individuals, families, and communities, giving them the ability to rise out of poverty.

In essence, CTE fills the basic social and physical need for life sustenance (food, clothing, shelter) and the self-actualization need of empowerment (education, jobs, etc.). It is this ability to respond to the needs of the poor in a holistic manner; that is, looking at the total range of needs and addressing both behavioral and systemic barriers, that allows CTE to fulfill its legislatively-mandated mission, and, as such, makes it unique among agencies serving the poor.
