Hurry! The Stop & Shop Give Back Program to benefit our Meal-a-Month Program ends in May. We receive a $1 donation every time a $2.50 reusable Community Bag is sold at the Stop & Shop located at 1937 West Main Street, Stamford CT!
Thanks to a recommendation by the Town of Greenwich and their Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) program, the shelter will be able to replace our beds and fund our emergency meals program. At $55,962 for new beds and $10,000 for meals, this represents a very generous grant for which we are thankful. The shelter took in 325 men and young adults last year which puts wear and tear on the furniture so new sturdy beds are welcome and will be put to good use.
Thanks to our friends at The Undies Project and a $2,500 grant they applied for and were awarded from the Stamford Rotarty Trust Fund at Rotary Club of Stamford our clients have underwear (16 large boxes worth!) and assorted women's undergarments for our female clients in our housing properties. This is a huge gift since these items are most needed for people who are homeless.
Stamford Mayor David Martin and Evonne Kliein, Commissioner, CT Dept. of Housing, helped Pacific House celebrate the opening of our sixth affordable housing porperty that will be home to 9 formerly homeless individuals!

Pacific House, in partnership with the City of Stamford, has developed this project that was in jeopardy of not being developed with the prior owner.
The house will offer 4 one-bedroom apartments and 2 two-bedroom apartments and provide permanent affordable housing for eight formerly homeless individuals.
The Recovery Program is operated in-house in collaboration with Liberation Programs and serves up to 12 clients. The goal is to help participants adopt a more stable lifestyle without the use of substances, and each year a ceremony is held to celebrate the graduates. This year a record number of clients proudly accepted their certificates of graduation!
This event, held on February 23, 2018 to benefit young adult clients living at Pacific House was a great success! Sponsors and guests raised more than $160,000 for the Young Adult Program at the shelter and enjoyed decadent desserts and food tastings paired with exceptional musical talent from local high schools, performing to show their support for young people struggling with homelessness in our community. Thank you for your support!
