A Safe Haven for Homeless Families
CRT’s 40-bed family shelter in East Hartford welcomes adults and their children. Dads, moms and two-parent families will find a safe environment. Case managers help connect families to services in the community.
The shelter is open 24 hours a day for families with children. A parent or guardian must be with their children at all times. Other children are expected to be in school while their parent(s) look for work or permanent housing. We help families keep their children in school, or re-enroll in new schools. Families work on their goals of finding jobs and moving into stable housing.
Staff speaks English and Spanish.
