2016 Reaching Home Celebration Dinner & Housing Awards


Please join us at the 11th Annual Reaching Home Celebration Dinner and Housing Awards to celebrate the successes of the Reaching Home Campaign to end homelessness in Connecticut. 

The Reaching Home Campaign is focused on ending homelessness in Connecticut through Opening Doors, the national strategy to prevent and end homelessness among people who are chronically homeless, veterans, children and families, and youth. The Housing Awards at the Reaching Home Celebration will highlight supportive housing tenants who have made significant contributions to their community as well as people who have shown exceptional leadership and advocacy in working to prevent and end homelessness. The Dinner celebrates our collective successes and the partners who have made these achievements possible, bringing together the many dedicated individuals who play a vital role in the Reaching Home Campaign’s work to prevent and end homelessness.

At this dinner celebration, individuals  are honored for dedication to ending homelessness in Connecticut. We thank you for nominating a supportive housing tenant, leader, or advocate for their commitment to the movement to end homelessness in Connecticut. Awards will be handed out at the Reaching Home Celebration Dinner and Housing Awards event to held on Thursday June 16th.
