The Emergency Shelter is a 50 bed facility available to homeless families and single adults. The program is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Action plans assist individuals to address needs such as medical, housing, employment, treatment programs and transportation. Customers are required to actively participate in housing and job searches. When employment or a legitimate source of income is obtained earnings must be saved as part of their case plan. Each adult has scheduled bi-weekly meetings with their assigned case manager to report progress and receive support for their action plan requirements. Issues that caused customers to become homeless and the necessary steps to alleviate some of those barriers are addressed in case management meetings. Some of these issues may include substance abuse, mental health, employment/and or housing search, school registration, physical health, saving money, and entitlement programs. Unemployed individuals are referred to Workforce Development programs at CT Works for skill assessment and access to training opportunities.
