Connecticut Homeowners Watch as Foundations and Futures Crumble

Your home is one of your biggest investments, but some Connecticut residents are seeing that investment crumble because of failing foundations. This hour, we find out what the state is doing to help those whose homes and futures are -- quite literally -- falling apart beneath them. 

We also hear from the executive director of Connecticut’s new Commission on Women, Children and Seniors. The agency -- which began operating on July 1, 2016 -- takes the place of three former legislative commissions: the Permanent Commission on the Status of Women, the Commission on Children, and the Commission on Aging. We take a closer look at what that means and how it affects some of Connecticut’s most vulnerable populations.


  • Jim Williams - Homeowner from Tolland, Connecticut
  • Tim Heim - Homeowner from Willington, Connecticut; president of the Connecticut Coalition Against Crumbling Basements
  • Jonathan Harris - Commissioner of Connecticut’s Department of Consumer Protection
  • Rep. Bill Aman - Represents Connecticut’s 14th General Assembly District
  • Steve Hernández, Esq. - Executive Director of Connecticut’s newly formed Commission on Women, Children and Seniors
