The National Alliance to End Homelessness (NAEH) State of Homelessness report offers national data that serves to inform a broad audience of the most recently available data on the trends and progress being made to end homelessness in the United States. Users are able to view data at the national and state level. The report also offers insight into where Connecticut stands on its own and in relation to the rest of the U.S.
In Connecticut, it is reported that 88% of our total homeless population are residing in shelters, with only 12% unsheltered as of 2017. According to the report, in Connecticut on any given night, there are approximately 3,300 people experiencing homelessness.
The overall purpose of this report is to provide data that policymakers, advocates, journalists and the general public can use to understand the current state of homelessness, and to promote impactful change based on current research and data analysis.
