Homeless Moms and Kids… The Fastest Growing Segment of Homelessnesss

The faces of the homeless are changing.  Sadly, a growing percentage of the homeless population here in coastal Fairfield County is made up of single women and mothers with children.

Open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, our comfortable shelter provides the essentials of safe lodging, nourishing food and needed clothing for displaced women with children.  Women receive case management support and access to our Learning Center and work-training program to expand their education and employment opportunities.  Our ultimate goal is to help homeless and hurting women gain long-term stability and a better life for their families and to provide children with a safe, nurturing environment to prevent generational homelessness.
