Connecticut's 2024 legislative session runs February 7 - May 8. We need your voice to help end homelessness!
 

Columbus House has joined the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness and our many partners across the state to ask our legislators to stabilize and strengthen Connecticut’s Homeless Response System. We must convince our legislators and Governor that the critical services we provide – which save lives and public dollars – can only happen with reliable yearly funding. Our sector is requesting that $20M be permanently invested in the state budget to make our vital work possible.

 

Here's what we need you to do NOW: 

  • Email or call the members of the Appropriations Committee and ask them to stabilize and strengthen the Homeless Response System. FIND LIST OF MEMBERS BY CAN (Coordinated Access Network*) HERE (updated 2023)
