We look forward to welcoming you to the Virtual Reaching Home Awards Celebration

Thursday, June 16th, 2021
from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

 

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. 

We'll join together over Zoom with distinguished awardees to celebrate their accomplishments and the work of so many to prevent and end homelessness in Connecticut. 

Although we are still unable 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. 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.

We are so looking forward to gathering virtually to celebrate together with our partners, speakers, award recipients, sponsors, friends, and family. 

See you on the 16th!

Nominations are currently open for the
2021 Reaching Home Awards.
