Hartford-The annual count of homelessness in Connecticut on January 26 of this year shows that Connecticut continues to make major gains in the effort to end homelessness, according to Point-in-Time Count reports released May 10.
The January 26 count, coordinated by the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness (CCEH), showed that overall, homelessness in Connecticut is down nearly four percent compared to 2015, and has dropped by 13 percent since 2007.
The continuing decline follows major investments to end homelessness by the administration of Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the General Assembly, in tandem with concerted efforts to coordinate and target resources at the community level.
Hartford– The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness is hiring a data coordinator to join the team!
The Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness, in partnership with members and communities throughout the state, creates change through leadership, advocacy, and building the capacity of members and the field to respond to environmental challenges. Our collective mission is to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut.
The Data Coordinator will play a key role in CCEH’s data efforts – primarily working with data in and from the Connecticut Homeless Management Information System (CT HMIS). Under the supervision of the Director of HMIS and Strategic Analysis, the Data Coordinator will be responsible for data analysis and dissemination to meet CCEH’s increasing demand for accurate and timely data in the state.
Connecticut is a national leader in the effort to end homelessness. In August of 2015, Connecticut made history when we became the first state to end the long term homelessness of veterans with disabilities. We are also on track, through the Governor’s Zero: 2016 initiative, to end the long-term homelessness of all Connecticut residents with severe disabilities by the end of this year.
