Harthaven Partners LLC.
HartHaven is committed to improving community, particularly in the area of education, arts and healthcare. Below are some of our current philanthropic commitments
Migrant Farm Worker Clinic
Migrant farm workers are among the most economically disadvantaged and most medically vulnerable groups in the United States having little, if any, access to health care or medication. In addition to barriers to access to health care that many citizens meet like affordable health insurance, language barriers, and lack of transportation, migrant workers also experience additional barriers such as fear of deportation, loss or garnished wages, and being dismissed or not invited back to work by the employer due to missed work or health issues. A coalition of local organizations, along with the University of Connecticut (UConn), has formed a network to overcome these barriers and attend to the health care needs of migrant and seasonal farm workers.
Student Achievement Through Opportunity
Founded in 2011 as an extension of Beta Iota Boule’s education program, Student Achievement Through Opportunity (SATO) is a Hartford, Connecticut based organization dedicated to closing the opportunity gapand committed to addressing challenges of academic achievement for minority and low income students through programs providing both academic and cultural enrichment opportunities. SATO seeks to assist middle school students in broadening their sense of possibility, and provides support as they pursue access to higher education. At SATO, we believe student success involves creating opportunities that address the impediments our young scholars face. By addressing the “achievement gap”, SATO provides students with a unique opportunity to move beyond traditional approaches to education, learning and life
