Connecticut’s battle against rising homelessness needs your help. We’re pushing for a $20 million boost to strengthen our Homeless Response System, aiming to expand shelters, ensure emergency support, and improve housing services. This funding is vital for saving lives and using public funds efficiently. Key efforts include healthcare for minors and formalizing the Connecticut Interagency Council on Homelessness. Join us in advocating for safe, stable housing for all in Connecticut. Together, we can end homelessness.
