Journey Home to Host its Second Annual Gala at CityPlace in Hartford

Journey Home, which helps individuals in West Hartford and throughout the Greater Hartford area transition out of homelessness, will hold its “Home is Where the Heart Is’ fundraiser on Feb. 10.



On Friday, Feb.10, 2017 at 6:30 p.m., Journey Home will host its Second Annual Gala, Home is Where the Heart Is.

The Gala is being held at The Atrium at CityPlace 185 Asylum St. in Hartford. We are featuring elegant fare by Max Downtown, a Live Auction with WFSB’s Scot Haney, food and beverage tastings from NoRA Cupcakes and Hartford Flavor Company, a plethora of silent auction items, and many other fun games and surprises.

Many local individuals, businesses, and corporations are making this event possible. The wider community’s commitment to the improvement of our entire region is startling and Journey Home is grateful for the deep investment of so many in our work and mission.

Together, we will end homelessness.

Gov. Malloy announced recently that due to unprecedented housing efforts, Connecticut is able to match every verified chronically homeless individual to permanent housing. Journey Home is proud to have been a part of this incredible achievement, and we are grateful to our many community partners for their years of effort to make such amazing progress.

We have witnessed firsthand the power of collaboration. As we set our sights on continuing this work, and move forward to end homelessness among youth and families, we find ourselves overwhelmed and inspired by how far we have come and enter the future with the great hope and knowledge that homelessness can, and will, be an injustice of the past.

All proceeds from this event will be used to continue the work that we do at Journey Home. Your support will allow us to continue to lead initiatives to end homelessness in the Greater Hartford region.

There are still tickets available. For more information please visit journeyhomect.org/gala or contact Sara Salomons at 860-808-0336 or [email protected].

Journey Home’s mission is to accelerate progress towards ending homelessness in the Greater Hartford region. We introduce innovative programs, pathways, and projects, and coordinate their implementation with many social services organizations, government agencies, and others it takes to get the job done. Journey Home implements the philosophy of solving homelessness, rather than continue to manage it. The end results is helping people who experience homelessness get into housing with support services they need. We believe that working together, we can end homelessness.
