DanburyWORKS, a collaboration of 14 community partners, has officially launched.  The goal is to improve equity and the quality of life in the City.  This collaboration stems from the Boston Federal Reserve’s Working Cities Challenge Grant of $450,000 awarded to Danbury last year.  United Way of Western Connecticut CEO Kim Morgan says under the umbrella of DanburyWorks, people are coordinating their efforts to address the challenges of Danbury’s residents.  There will be an emphasis on creating more affordable licensed childcare, with a focus on infant and toddler care.  Another goal is to help people navigate English as a Second Language pathways so they can become fluent in English and improve their employability and financial stability.  Officials say there's a focus on building an infrastructure that supports and builds trust.
