Connecticut’s shelters are doing everything they can to follow the CDC guidelines of spacing beds 6 feet apart, but the reality is that with current shelter capacity we need to work more quickly than ever to move people out of shelters and into HOMES. Please join our effort to keep clients and staff safe by helping them stay where they are safest: at home.
Donate Emergency Funds:
Please consider donating emergency funds to move families and individuals into apartments right away. Funds provide flexible emergency assistance for first month’s rent, security deposits, and other one-time expenses associated with housing clients experiencing homelessness.
Join the CCEH Charity Challenge:
We are in a race to move clients out of shelters and hotels into homes before June 1st. Join the CCEH Charity Challenge this May. Funds you raise will provide much-needed emergency assistance for first-month’s rent and other housing assistance. Join the challenge and show the world how much you care!
CCEH has compiled wishlists of items that our local partners need to keep their staff and clients safe during this crisis. Items in high demand include PPE and other supplies. Visit our wishlist page to learn how you can donate or purchase items for your local shelters.
Share an apartment vacancy:
We are looking for assistance identifying any vacant units right away. Please share any vacancies that we can share with our providers.
