Leading the Effort to End Homelessness in the Capital Region of Connecticut
At Journey Home, we believe that everyone deserves to feel the comfort and safety of home.
Homelessness is a complicated and expensive social problem.
Without coordinating all available programs and services:
- Responses are siloed
- Efforts get duplicated
- Dollars are wasted
Journey Home coordinates the Capital Region’s system for ending homelessness. We guide the efforts between service providers, government agencies, businesses, and local communities to achieve enduring, systemic change.
How You Can Help Us End Homelessness in the Capital Region of Connecticut
How Journey Home is Making a Difference
Our mission is to ensure a home for all.
We’ve spent more than a decade committed to ending homelessness in Connecticut’s Capital region by applying sustainable solutions to the barriers that create cycles of homelessness.
Every day, we work to:
- Prevent as many people as possible from losing their housing
- Increase the speed at which we find housing for anyone who is already experiencing homelessness
- Help folks move into their homes and provide the furnishings and services they need to never become homeless again
Richard Buckminster Fuller says, “You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
For Connecticut, that new model is the Coordinated Access Network, a way for people who are experiencing homelessness to access housing and support services in a standardized and organized way. It involves having clear protocols, assessment tools, and agreed-upon priorities within the community that serves homeless individuals.
