Call 2-1-1! To Help Those in Need of Housing and Shelter

Connecticut's Coordinated Entry guidelines now require that anyone seeking emergency shelter and housing go through the state's 2-1-1 system. Just dial 2-1-1, select Option 3 and then select Option 1.

Callers in need of housing or shelter will reach a trained Housing Specialist who will perform an initial assessment, make referrals as needed and when appropriate, schedule a community level appointment with a duty services coordinator. This does not guarantee immediate shelter or housing placement. [ more ]
