Wishes For Hamden Seniors

The Hamden Senior Wish Society is a grassroots, local organization dedicated to assisting Hamden’s seniors with purchase and expenses they may not be able to afford.

The Society seeks to help senior residents by supplying such things as:

  • air conditioners
  • appliances
  • car repairs
  • assistive devices
  • furniture
  • holiday gifts for grandchildren
  • and possibly help with medical expenses not covered by insurance.
