Our Mission

The mission of Connecticut Veterans Legal Center is to help veterans recovering from homelessness and mental illness overcome legal barriers to housing, healthcare and income. Our mission is inspired by our late co-founder, Howard Udell, who passed away in 2013.  To donate in memory of Howard click here.  Donation checks can be made out to "CVLC" and mailed to our office at 114 Orange Avenue, 2nd Fl. West Haven, CT 06516


Click here to buy tickets or sponsorship packages for CVLC's "Saluting Service" annual fundraising event. Join us for delicious bites and a complementary wine and cocktail tasting. We will be bringing together supporters, volunteers and stakeholders from across the state to raise awareness about civil-legal aid and the huge impact it can have on the lives of low-income veterans. Hope to see you there!  

Supporter Spotlight

When we are not busy meeting veterans at the VA CT’s Errera Community Care Center in West Haven, CVLC attorneys had previously relied on shared office space provided at no cost by Wiggin and Dana, LLP in downtown New Haven. Now, thanks to the Simon Konover Company, CVLC has moved into its very own, gorgeous space at no cost.  A huge thanks to Wiggin and Dana and McCarter English for the donated furniture.
