What We Do

Journey Home has spent more than a decade committed to ending chronic homelessness in the Greater Hartford region.

We apply sustainable solutions to the barriers that create cycles of homelessness. We are proud to be a lead agency within the Greater Hartford and Central Coordinated Access Network, developer of the Career Pathways Employment Program, and creator of Making a House a Home/A Hand Up.


Who We Serve

Hartford has the highest concentration of individuals experiencing homelessness in Connecticut; accounting for 25% of the state’s homeless households.

Our efforts are making a clear impact, and we saw a 20% decrease in Greater Hartford’s homeless population from 2011-2016. The momentum has continued and in less than two years we have matched 72% of those experiencing chronic homelessness to housing, which means they are already housed or will be housed very soon.

Journey Home, aided by the tireless work of our strategic partners, the generous support of our donors and the compassion and enthusiasm of our volunteers, is on-track to end homelessness in Greater Hartford for good.
