The ninth annual Reaching Home Celebration Dinner and Housing Awards brought together roughly 450 people to commemorate the good work done in the last year to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut.
This was the largest gathering ever for a Reaching Home Dinner.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy was on hand to accept a special award for his leadership in addressing Connecticut’s affordable housing crisis. Since taking office in 2011, Gov. Malloy has invested more than $500 million in housing initiatives, including a significant expansion of supportive housing. In his speech, Gov. Malloy acknowledged the work of the crowd, which included clients, building managers, program leaders, advocates, elected officials, commissioners of public agencies, funders, and many others. He was presented his award by Charlotte Suhler, Partnership's board chair.
