Through the City of Stamford’s Below Market Rate (BMR) initiative, Charter Oak Communities has helped create a diverse community with housing options for all income levels, including those needing public assistance. Its economic diversity fosters social and environmental conditions that protect and enhance Stamford’s social fabric while making our communities both an excellent choice for families seeking comfortable, affordable places to raise their families, and a top pick for renters looking for vibrant and exciting city life.

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

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. 

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.

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.

The Stamford Youth Mental Health Alliance is a partnership of the City of Stamford, Department of Health, Stamford Health Commission, Stamford Public Schools and over three dozen clinical and community service providers forged to address the growing mental health crisis among its children and adolescents. SYMHA is focused on prevention, early intervention, and access to care and resources to promote mental wellness throughout our community.

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.
