Journey Home’s 7th Annual Fundraiser will be held on Thursday, May 19.
On Thursday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m., Journey Home will host their “Home is Where the Heart Is Spring Soiree” at Talcott Mountain Collective in Simsbury.
The event will feature some fun food from area food trucks, delicious drinks, beverage tastings from Hartford Flavor Company, a plethora of silent auction items, and 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.
Journey Home is a team of innovative problem solvers who are passionate about ending homelessness in the community. Founded in 2007 as the agency responsible for implementing Hartford’s 10-Year Plan to End Homelessness, Journey Home has grown to become a strategic leader and valued partner for homeless service providers throughout the region. Journey Home has spent more than a decade committed to ending homelessness in Connecticut’s Capital Region. Since 2014, our region has experienced a 90% decline in chronic homelessness.
Journey Home applies sustainable solutions to the barriers that create cycles of homelessness. The organization is proud to be a lead agency within the Greater Hartford and Central Coordinated Access Network, developer of the Career Pathways Employment Program, and creator of A Hand Up (the Capitol Region’s only furniture collection and distribution program).
Since the start of the pandemic, the Greater Hartford Coordinated Access Network has served over 5,000 people with rental assistance, emergency shelter, and critical services in collaboration with our partner agencies, helping people in crisis avoid homelessness and helping those already experiencing homelessness to get the housing they need and deserve.
Journey Home has also distributed almost $4 million of funding to our partner agencies to ensure that those who are struggling with housing security get the services they need to achieve housing stability.
All proceeds from this event will be used to continue the work that Journey Home does, and support will allow the organization to continue to lead initiatives to end homelessness in Connecticut’s Capital region. There are still tickets available. For more information please visit journeyhomectevents.org or contact Sara Salomons Wilson at [email protected] or 860-882-9791.
