The Great Give 2017




Many thanks to all who gave close to $12,500 to Columbus House through ‎The Great Give 2017‬! Your gifts will go even further to help us move people out of homelessness, and provide the services and support they need to rebuild their lives. Thank you to The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven for hosting this exciting event. And, thank you to James, Sophie, and Debra for sharing their stories so that others can find homes too.
