The programs broadcast on CRIS Radio are available to individuals who, because of vision loss, learning disability or physical handicap, are unable to read printed material. CRIS Radio programming features a wide variety of articles from national and Connecticut newspapers, magazines, as well as book readings and interview programs.  Read more.

CRIS Starts Crowd Funding Campaign for Roof Repair

There's a leak in our roof that must be repaired, to ensure the safety of our staff, volunteers and equipment. The majority of our funders prefer to make grants for operations or certain programs, so we are turning to crowd funding to fix the roof. The great thing about crowd funding is that the expectation is not that someone will donate $10,000, but that many might donate $10 (or more, if they can.) Can you help us?
