Project Details

This project funds the state's homelessness shelters (CANs) to contract for social services as part of a larger state-wide project to identify Connecticut residents in the early stages of losing their housing who are most likely to end up homeless or in shelter. 4-CT funded services including landlord mediation, medical care (including mental health counseling), job/skills training, and many more, as an attempt to address each individual’s or family’s housing crisis at its root. As part of this effort, other funders, including the State, are providing considerable rent assistance as well as limited legal aid.
