Since 1981, the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal has been able to assist tens of thousands of people, regardless of race, religion or color across the Archdiocese of Hartford with health care, educations, housing, emergency expenses and in numerous other areas. 
It is through the Archbishop’s Annual Appeal Vicariate Outreach program and the generosity of its donors that the Appeal is able to assist a wide array of community based charities throughout Hartford, New Haven and Litchfield Counties.
