ALWAYS HOME'S MISSION IS PREVENTING FAMILY HOMELESSNESS.
As the region's leading service provider focused exclusively on serving Eastern Connecticut families with minor children, Always Home offers case management support and access to critical emergency services required to establish housing stability. We seek to prevent homelessness before it happens, to use shelter as a destination of last resort, and to limit any family's time in shelter to a maximum of 30 days. Our core programs include Homelessness Prevention/Shelter Diversion, Emergency Shelter and Rapid Re-housing.
In FY 2020 (July 1, 2019 - June 30, 2020), we served 326 families in housing crisis (1,057 family members including 419 adults and 638 minor children), a staggering 40% increase over the total number of families we served the prior fiscal year. Given the housing crisis brought about by the pandemic, the escalated demand for our services continues.
