Thanks to employees at Shipman & Goodwin for paying- yes paying- to wear jeans to work to raise funds to buy hats, scarves, gloves and socks for Pacific House! This great idea from a Stamford law firm turned denim into doing good to keep the men warm and safe during (gasp) another potential polar vortex winter and we thank them for their generosity!
We thank our many donors, sponsors, and volunteers for their tremendous support! You are the reason we can offer so many beneficial programs and services, beyond meals and a safe haven, for the more than 500 clients who each year turn to us for help.
Peter Rugen and Gene Schreiner of First County Bank flank Peggy Lutz and Rafael Pagan, Jr. of the shelter to award a $10,000 grant for much-needed upgrades of the shelter's server and phone systems which will help us provide better service to all. Thank You.
First County Bank has been a commited supporter of the shelter for many years, and our thanks go out to all involved in their decision to help the clients at the shelter improve their situations.
Thanks to Bank of America for their support of the shelter!
Bank of America's investment in our organization enables us to provide homeless men with food, shelter and critical services and programs that help them move toward self-sufficient lives. We applaud their generous gift!

in Connecticut. That is just one 'point in time' count in our state and that count
is repeated each night.

Growing up in a family that honors the tradition of Tikkun Olam (“Repairing the World”), which calls for Jewish people to reach out to those who are less fortunate and provide assistance, it is not surprising that Matthew Paseltiner chose a Mitzvah Project that would benefit Shelter for the Homeless.
