CARE Darien

Our hope is this ongoing campaign – C.A.R.E. Darien – will ultimately touch the lives of every organization and individual in our community, and result in a significant positive culture change in Darien.  That’s why we thought you would like to play a part.  We understand that we are taking on a huge challenge, but if we don’t, who will? 

Did you get a C.A.R.E Pass?

A number of C.A.R.E. Darien programs are currently planned, including:

Ongoing at Darien Library
Oral History Project
Teens will interview members of our community about their memories of and experiences in Darien. These interviews will be hosted on our website and will become a rich, collective history of Darien. If you would like to participate , either as an interviewer or an interviewee, please contact Sarah Ludwig at or 203-669-5225.
