Partnering with Local Recruiters


ConnCAT (Connecticut Center for Arts and Technology) began in 2010 as a collaboration with Yale New Haven Hospital to provide hard skills training to job seekers with employment barriers. The courses offered in medical coding and phlebotomy, and a new culinary program launched in 2016, provide training in much-needed jobs in the community. Many phlebotomists have already been hired from the local community in New Haven at Yale New Haven Hospital and other healthcare organizations. ConnCAT also conducts after-school and summer programming for children, focusing on the arts in an immersive and supportive environment.

H.O.P.E. Program

Yale New Haven Hospital's Having Opportunities to Prepare for Employment (H.O.P.E.) program was created in 1996 at the Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven, which became part of Yale New Haven Hospital when the two organizations integrated in 2012. Since its inception this award-winning program has helped more than 100 adults transition from income supports into employment, many at the hospital.
