We have very exciting news to share! The Central Connecticut Coordinated Access Network has permanently housed every known chronically homeless individual and family known to the system in New Britain, Berlin, Bristol, Plainville, and Southington. “This is another amazing achievement in our effort to end homelessness here in our community and region,” said Mayor Erin Stewart. “Through the city’s efforts and the Central Connecticut CAN, we have a network of dedicated partners who are committed to ensuring that individuals do not fall into a cycle of homelessness. We are a community of compassion and this is proof in action.” The last four By Name List (BNL) reports that are compiled weekly statewide show that the Central CT CAN has reported 0 chronic individuals. Officials are hopeful that this trend will continue. Journey Home is proud to have been a part of this incredible achievement, and we are grateful to our many community partners in the Coordinated Access Network for their years of effort to make such amazing progress. We have witnessed firsthand the power of collective impact. Each of the partner agencies involved in these efforts deserves praise for their enduring efforts to provide each person with the services and housing they needed to stabilize their lives.
