The New Haven Regional Center for the Mentally Retarded was opened in Fall of 1965 in New Haven Connecticut. It was opened alongside the Bridgeport Regional Center and a center in Putman Connecticut. Dr. Walter C. Alvarez wrote, in regard to the opening of the three new facilities, “experts are advocating the the building of small centers that will permit the retarded children to remain near his home, or even in it.” 1
