welcome

Welcome to The Valley Council, a partnership network of nonprofit agencies that serve the residents of Connecticut’s Lower Naugatuck Valley.  The Valley Council works to strengthen the capacity of our member agencies and community partners to provide high quality health and human services in the Valley region.  By coming together to build relationships, exchange information, share resources, identify community needs, and plan for community solutions, we help to improve quality of life for Valley residents.

If you are a representative of a nonprofit agency serving Valley residents, learn about the benefits and process of becoming a member of the Valley Council.
