Resident Highlight

Johnny Taylor, resident of Clinton Manor, speaks often of how grateful he is to the staff and neighbors in his building. He feels fortunate, he says, because the facility is easily accessible for his motorized wheelchair, and he is happy to be around people who look out for one another.

Community Partners

Volunteer-powered and socially responsible, Fairgate Farm is the thriving heart of the Vita Health & Wellness District. The Farm supplies fresh, organic and locally-grown fruit and vegetables to our community and to nonprofit agencies. We offer a filled calendar of special events, including nutrition, cooking, and gardening education programs throughout the spring and summer.

A partnership of Charter Oak Communities, Stamford Hospital and the City of Stamford and in collaboration with numerous service organizations, Vita is redefining health, housing, and community in Stamford’s West Side neighborhood.

For over a decade, Charter Oak Communities has partnered with Stamford’s premier human services provider, Family Centers, to provide resident services throughout our communities. Our relationship with Family Centers promotes personal growth, resident leadership, and community cohesion.

We’ve partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of Stamford — a premier facility for youth ages 6-18 — to further their mission to improve the lives of children throughout all areas and disciplines of their lives  in order for them to reach their full potential.
