Helping the Elderly of Hamden - The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven and The Phelps Community Project

In her Last Will and Testament, Emma P. Pelton of Cheshire, Connecticut established the John P. and Cora E. Phelps Fund at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven in memory of her grandfather and mother to “benefit … elderly people who are residents of the Town of Hamden.” Since the fund was established over forty years ago, more than 65 grants have been made to eight organizations serving Hamden’s older adults.
