End Homelessness in Connecticut

This #GivingTuesday, join the effort to help end homelessness and make sure everyone in Connecticut has a safe, stable home.

A fundraising campaign for Partnership for Strong Communities

UPDATE 11/28/18: Thanks to our generous donors and fundraisers, we have met and exceeded our goal of $12,500! We have received several requests from people who were not able to donate last night. Because of this, the #GivingTuesday fundraiser will be open until the end of November. The next $2,500 in gifts will be matched, so now is the time to donate!

We are so grateful for your generosity and support!

Our Story

Thanks to the incredible work behind the scenes and to supporters like yourself…

Families across Connecticut are being reunited. 

People experiencing addiction and mental illness are returning to a life of stability, and opportunity.

Children who have never known a stable home are finally experiencing peace and comfort. 

Those like you who are contributing to ending homelessness in Connecticut are seeing the pay off. Connecticut is now within reach of ending chronic homelessness by the end of the year, and ending youth homelessness by 2020.

PSC's annual IForum series. In 2018, Gov. Malloy delivered the keynote address for our "Housing Success' IForum.

But now, at this critical juncture, is the time to double-down efforts so that housing justice can be reached for ALL Connecticut residents.

In our society, the most burdened often receive the least help. What affects one member of our community affects us all – housing justice is a collective issue. Over 200,000 people in our state spend more than 50% of their income on housing, and are struggling to survive. This affects our people, communities, and economy. 

While our organization has made tremendous progress in taking the movement so far, it has so much further to go. Help us get there by making a difference. Your pledge will help to provide a safe, stable home for everyone in our state through our continued advocacy, partner conduit efforts, and system solutions. 

Statewide, 85% of verified chronic homeless individuals have been matched to housing through the Coordinated Access Network (CAN) system we helped create alongside our partners.

We spend endless hours fighting to end homelessness in Connecticut, to create a system where no one is too small, or too insignificant to care for.

We are asking you to join us.

Support the Partnership for Strong Communities this #GivingTuesday season, and spread the word, as we work to end homelessness in Connecticut and make a more definitive difference, together.

About the Organization

Partnership for Strong Communities

Partnership for Strong Communities is a recognized leader and advocate for ending homelessness, creating affordable homes, and developing strong communities in Connecticut. None of these complex social problems can be solved by a single organization, and the Partnership has taken a leadership role in a process of collective impact to create and implement solutions by convening a broad coalition of partners across a spectrum of systems and service sectors. The Partnership develops reports and fact sheets, compiles data, aggregates information and publishes a variety of email communications on issues related to housing and community development. We organize educational events (our IForum series) that increase knowledge about housing and demonstrate that effective housing policy can contribute to solutions in policy areas as broad as healthcare, education, transportation, environmental quality, economics, urban policy and food insecurity.
