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 1,000 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.

Hold A Bear-Raiser

Bear-Raisers are the easiest way to support be homeful. For every $25 you raise, we will give a bear or book to a child in shelter during the holidays, and due to the generous support of underwriting by the CT Realtors Foundation, every dollar goes to keeping a family at risk of homelessness from having to experience that hardship. 

We'll give you everything you need for a successful campaign, and help along the way if you need it. You just be a passionate voice and take action to help a child or family in your community experienceing homeslessness.

Create a "Bear-Raising Wall"

Bear-Raising Walls, or giving trees, are a fun, easy and visible way to support be homeful in your business, place of worship, or storefront during the holidays or year-round.

We will give you all of the materials you need to set up the wall, and all you need to do is collect the donations and know you are making the holidays better for a child in shelter, and helping to keep a family home.
