The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness launched be homeful in December, 2014. This campaign is a bold and innovative project designed to help Americans stamp out family homelessness for good. Our mission is to end homelessness one family at a time for the 1,300 families in Connecticut that experience homelessness in any given year.

While shelters across the state are bursting at the seams, there is currently no major source of funding to keep struggling families from slipping into homelessness in moments of crisis. By making funds available to keep families in the comfort of home, we can help break the cycle of homelessness that can carry forward across generations.

Through community partnerships and collaboration with families across Connecticut, the be homeful project will establish the first state-wide emergency assistance fund for shelter diversion. This fund will be accessible to case workers serving families at the front door of shelter and will reimburse expenses for rental assistance, security deposits, gas cards and other sundry expenses tied to diverting family from shelter in favor of actual homes.

Donate

Donate now.

You can help end homelessness for a local family with a donation to the be homeful project. Your support will allow a family to remain where their children can thrive: at home.

Your donation makes you a world of distance to a child. A gift of $1,000+ is the average amount required to prevent a family from becoming homelessness in the first place. Every dollar matters!

Here are some examples of what your gift can do:

  • $50 can help with transportation to work, or food for the dinner table.
  • $100 can help with the cost of electricity, heat, or water.
  • $250 can help cover part of a month's rent subsidy.
  • $500 can help with a month's rent subsidy.
  • $1000 - the average cost to keep a family housed!

Little things add up so even a $1 gift can make a difference for a family facing homelessness. Thank you for being homeful!
