An Evening to Honor Bill Farley
On Wednesday, November 5th over 300 people came together at the Bond Ballroom in Downtown Hartford to honor William H. Farley. Bill Farley has devoted the last 53 years working to help so many people, especially those most in need. As founder of Journey Home, he has selflessly applied himself to helping all people in Hartford to have a real place they can call home. Throughout his distinguished career, Bill Farley has held leadership roles in many organizations serving the Hartford area, including PAL (Police Athletic League), University of Hartford, University of St. Joseph, Watkinson School, St. Elizabeth House, House of Bread, Greater Hartford Prayer Breakfast, Hartford Seminary, St. Mary’s Church in Simsbury, and the Town of Simsbury. Bill built the Farley Company — now part of CBRE New England — into the largest commercial real estate firm in Connecticut. And for the past eight years, he has committed himself to ending homelessness by founding and guiding the development of Journey Home. Journey Home could not be more grateful for Bill’s tireless efforts and shared commitment to our mission, and we are overwhelmed by the support shown by the Greater Hartford community in thanking him for his work, and ensuring its continuation with the help of so many generous financial contributions to Journey Home. We would like to extend a heartfelt message of gratitude to all of our sponsors, donors, and attendees.
