New London, CT 06320
Class of Housing/Services: Homeless overnight shelter and day shelter
We began our life as a coalition of citizens, faith communities, and service organizations seeking to provide a place of hospitality for our homeless neighbors. We retain these roots but have also organized as a not-for-profit organization, working to become a regional resource for our homeless neighbors… a place they can feel safe and welcome - A place which provides a doorway through which our guests can find the support they need to move into permanent housing.
Night Shelter At night, we provide a shelter for single adults. Our goal is to provide a place of rest and safety. While the sleeping arrangements are simple—a bunk, sheets and a blanket—we strive to provide a setting that is welcoming and dignified. Having a place to stay keeps people safe, and helps them regain the stability to work toward returning to permanent housing. On an average night, we provide this place of safety for about 50 men and women. The Overnight Shelter is located at St. James Episcopal Church at 76 Federal Street. Guests can enter the shelter beginning at about 7:00 in the evening, and must leave the shelter by about 7:00 the next morning. Each guest is provided with a small storage space in which to keep his/her personal belongings. A Daytime Hospitality Center During the day, we offer a hospitality center where our homeless neighbors can find sanctuary and practical assistance. The Hospitality Center helps address some of the practical aspects of being homeless—getting mail, taking a shower, finding a place to sit in cold weather. The Hospitality Center, also works to link people with the resources they need, to return to permanent housing. On an average day, 80 people visit our Daytime Hospitality Center. The Daytime Hospitality Center is located on the lower floor of the old home of the All Souls Unitarian Universalist Congregation at 19 Jay Street. We are open from 8:30 to 4:30 every day, except Sunday.
