Nonprofit and funder partners gathered on July 29 for the official launch of INTERSECT--the Secure Jobs initiative for southeastern Connecticut.  The Integrated Network to Employment and Re-Housing of Southeastern Connecticut is a coalition of nonprofits and government agencies united to support employment for families transitioning out of homelessness through the region's rapid re-housing program.  INTERSECT is funded by $35,000 in grants from the Southeastern CT Funders Collaborative, with an additional $35,000 in matching funds from the Melville Charitable Trust, which is leading the development of Secure Jobs CT in this and four other regions throughout the state.  Back row, left to right:  Sue Murphy, Liberty Bank Foundation; Lisa Shippee, Megan Brown, and Recina Sevigney, all of Thames Valley Council for Community Action; Dee Sullivan, Dime Bank Foundation; Evonne Klein, Commissioner, CT Department of Housing; Jennifer O'Brien, Community Foundation of Eastern CT; Kathryn Lord, Edward and Mary Lord Foundation; and Janice Elliott, Melville Charitable Trust.  Front row, left to right:  Gumwatty Garcia, TVCCA, and Nancy Bulkeley, Dominion Resources.
