The average cost of keeping a family housed is $1,000. Please consider sponsoring a family or holding a "bear-raiser" with your family, friends and colleagues.
Would you like to hold a drive to help local children this winter? Your community can join the fight against homelessness by signing up to hold a bear-raiser drive. For every $25 your team raises, we will gift a Paddington™ plush bear, book, or blankie in your honor to a child in shelter.
The best part is, thanks to underwriting by the Connecticut Realtors® Foundation and Citizens Bank, every dollar you raise provides emergency assistance that helps a family remain home rather than enter shelter. The more bears you raise, the greater your impact.
Since 2015, the be homeful project has prevented more than 500 children in families from ever having to experience the hardship of homelessness in the first place by providing much-needed emergency funds that frontline workers can access to help families in your community remain housed. In short, your gift will provide critical emergency assistance to help families on the verge of homelessness stay where they most want: at home.
