Housing & Homeless Resources
The COVID-19 pandemic is making it difficult for many people to find or afford safe housing for themselves and their families. There are laws in place to help protect you at this time, and organizations to help you, too. No one should have to face a challenge like this alone—there are services in Connecticut that can help.
COACH (COVID-19 Assistance for Community Health) is here to connect you with housing and other services to keep your family safe and healthy. Support coaches can put you in touch with services that can help, or listen if you want to talk with someone about how this pandemic is affecting you.
