The Hundred Club of Connecticut is a non-profit organization, which provides financial assistance to the families of police officers, correction officers and firefighters who have perished in the line of duty. The club consists of more than 2,400 members from all walks of life who are committed to this objective.Tuesday’s Children works on the front lines of unimaginable tragedies, providing personalized support and a safe landing place to traumatized, grief-stricken children, families and communities left reeling from terrorism or traumatic loss. The organization’s work begins when the emergency response ends, when the true, life-altering impact of the violence sets in. Its proven, long-term approach to helping family members and communities recover was forged in the aftermath of Tuesday, September 11, 2001.
