Each year, Partnership for Strong Communities (PSC) invites people to come together to celebrate, and to present the prestigious Reaching Home Awards (RHA). The awards are presented to individuals and groups that have demonstrated exceptional commitment to preventing and ending homelessness in Connecticut. This year's virtual RHA was held on Thursday, September 10.

RHA logoWe joined together over Zoom with distinguished awardees to celebrate their accomplishments and the work of so many to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut. We also welcomed Amanda Andere from Funders Together to End Homelessness as our keynote speaker.

Although we were not be able to come together in person, we remain united. Now more than ever, we are committed to the vision that no one should experience homelessness; that everyone should have a safe, stable place to call home. While we hope to host the next Reaching Home Celebration in the summer, we know now from experience that neither pandemic nor distance are strong enough to separate us.

We are stronger together, for that we truly have reason to celebrate. Thank you to all those who participated in the RHA including our partners, speakers, award recipients, sponsors, friends, and family. The recording of the awards can be found here.

Wishing you all the best from the Team at PSC!
