End family homelessness before it begins.
The be homeful project gives kids, families, and communities tools for learning about how homelessness affects local children and taking action to help by raising much-needed shelter diversion funds to help local families stay at home. Since the project launched the project in 2015, the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness and its members have helped over 1,000 children and their families stay in their homes. Join the effort and help end family homelessness in Connecticut for good.

Once upon a time...
A small bear traveled all the way to England in search of a new home. When he arrived at his destination, he had almost nothing to his name - only a suitcase containing an almost empty jar of marmalade and a label round his neck with the words:
Please look after this bear. Thank you.
Paddington's encounter with homelessness didn't last long --- he quickly met the Brown family in London's Paddington Station. But more than 50,000 families across America struggle to find this same sense of comfort and security. Now the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness has partnered with Paddington to launch the be homeful project, a campaign to end homelessness before it begins.
