Today was a good day. Thanks to all of the folks who turned out for this year’s golf fundraiser at Keney Park.Thanks to everyone who came out and supported The Open Hearth at our annual golf tournament today! I wasn’t sure we were going to be able to pull this off a few months ago, but the amazing staff and golf committee pulled off a miracle and we had a fantastic day at Keney Park Golf Course today.

The Hearth has been serving men experiencing homelessness in Hartford since 1884. This isn’t our first pandemic, and you can’t ever count us out.

We are excited to share the news that we are back to doing one of the things we love the most at The Open Hearth Association: training.

Last week, we completed the second of two trainings for Certified Forklift Operator. Classes were kept small for safety reasons, and the men were able to engage with hands-on learning. Several men from each graduating class have gone directly into good full-time jobs as forklift operators through our career pathways managed by Working Man's Center staff.

Big thanks to Ironworkers Local #15 and the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving for making this a reality.
