Each year we give it our all to help end homelessness in Connecticut. Since 2007, we’ve seen a 25% reduction in homelessness and in 2016 we became the second state to achieve an end to veteran homelessness. Along with more than 200 partners, we’ve helped develop a streamlined, cost effective system built upon solid data and best practices. However, we still have work to do. Approximately 9,400 individuals remain homeless in our state and more than 200,000 households spend 50% or more of their income on housing costs.
That’s why the Reaching Home campaign was launched; to serve as the backbone of the effort for procuring resources and crafting systems and solutions to end and prevent homelessness. Each year the Partnership for Strong Communities hosts an annual event to celebrate the remarkable people and progress we are making in the work to end homelessness in the state.
PSC is excited to announce the launch of the event page for the newly named Reaching Home Celebration! This event returns to the beautiful Anthony's Ocean View on June 13th from 5:00 - 8:00 PM.
Some exciting changes taking place are the inclusion of an online silent auction featuring over 100 items, an extended outdoor cocktail-style networking reception, and a wide array of hors d'oeurves in the place of a sit-down dinner. There will be an awards ceremony to celebrate the amazing accomplishments of these awardees, including housing providers, tenants, policymakers, and advocates.
This year, we will be using an online registration system through OneCause, where you will be able to register for tickets, sponsorship, and advertisements, as well as track your mobile bidding! The link to the registration page can be found here.
We are thrilled to offer this event again this year, with all these new exciting changes. We encourage you to register for this night of celebration, networking, and great food. Thank you for consider supporting the 14th Annual Reaching Home Housing Awards Celebration – we hope to see you there!
