Children's Community School (CCS) Waterbury, CT

It takes $10,000 to educate a child at CCS.  You can make that possible with a variety of support options, found here and on our PTO page.

Our Friend Richard Cobb

Leaving a Legacy

Richard Cobb lived with great purpose throughout his life, and now beyond his unexpected death in late January.  He came from a family of educators and became a dearly loved and distinguished Latin teacher at Taft for 40 years.  He became familiar with CCS through Taft’s community service program and he was always impressed with our simple but successful approach to educating students who came from different backgrounds as those he knew from Taft. 

He was a modest, soft-spoken man who started making large gifts to CCS from a family member’s trust.  He even helped deliver poinsettias a couple of years, and he told others about us, but politely declined tours and special events.  Unbeknownst to CCS, he left a percentage of his residuary estate to the school on his death – just as outlined below.  It is with great sadness and gratitude that we share this story.
