Please Support our 2019 Annual Appeal

Our 2019 Annual Appeal is underway!

Please consider donating to the Beth-El Center and you'll be supporting our efforts to assist local individuals and families, like Nicole's who are experiencing homeless or hunger.

Nicole and her four young children came to the Beth-El Center when she had nowhere to turn. After their stay with Nicole's mother came to a contentious ending combined with her struggle with chronic, debilitating illnesses, Nicole and her children were homeless.

Partner with us in aiding the people who occupy our 34 bed shelter and our No Freeze winter shelter, benefit from our outreach services and eat daily meals at our soup kitchen.

Your donation makes a difference!

During this season of gratitude, on behalf of our clients and residents, we thank you for your generosity and ask
for your continued financial support. [ more ]

Call 2-1-1! To Help Those in Need of Housing and Shelter

Connecticut's Coordinated Entry guidelines now require that anyone seeking emergency shelter and housing go through the state's 2-1-1 system. Just dial 2-1-1, select Option 3 and then select Option 1.

Callers in need of housing or shelter will reach a trained Housing Specialist who will perform an initial assessment, make referrals as needed and schedule an appointment with a duty services coordinator. This does not guarantee immediate shelter or housing placement. [ more ]
