Pacific House Is Leading the Way in Helping Connecticut Reach the Goal of Ending Chronic Homelessness by Year-End
There are approximately 30 chronically homeless individuals in the lower Fairfield County area, and Pacific House is committed to housing them all by year-end. Learn more here.
Helping Hands Community Thrift Store and Furniture Bank partners with local non-profits like Pacific House to distribute proceeds from the sale of gently used items. Donations can be dropped off (or they offer pick-up service for larger applicances and furniture) knowing a second home awaits! Check them out the next time you need to de-clutter, spring clean or edit your belongings.
Many things are working well at Shelter for the Homeless. Thanks to your help we are able to:
- get people back on their feet
- offer the most vulnerable a safe place to sleep and a healthy warm meal
- partner with community agencies to ensure that no one is falling through the cracks
- develop innovative solutions for permanent housing
- help eradicate chronic homelessness among veterans across the state
But it’s time for a change…..
Our organization is expanding its supportive housing program, and this grant from Fairfield County Community Foundation supports a Program Coordinator to lead the project and manage the successful implementation of these important community housing resources.
A salute to our troops on Veterans' Day and a Thank You every day is on our minds and in our hearts. But this story really hits "home" and stirs our emotions. Two homeless veterans get new Stamford apartments and for that we are very thankful, and excited for their move! John Whitaker and George Hoffman are beneficiaries of Department of Housing and Urban Development housing vouchers.
