About

Family & Children’s Agency is seeking volunteers to sponsor a Sunday lunch for homeless adults at our Community Connections Center. This includes, planning and purchasing pre-made/pre-packaged foods from stores or restaurants then delivering it to our Community Connections Center. Approximately 40-50 adults visit the center each day and we offer them a mid-day meal as their opportunity for meals at the local shelter is limited on Sundays.

This is a great opportunity for a group of friends, family or co-workers to go shopping together and plan the meal. The meal may be a tray of sandwiches from a deli with a fruit platter or salads, soup, stew or pasta from a restaurant or grocery store. Any healthy option is very much appreciated and volunteers should plan on enough food for 30-40 adults.

Program Information

Established in 1986, the Community Connections Program at Family & Children’s Agency have established a continuum of care for homeless adults. We have homelessness prevention programs, programs working with adults experiencing homelessness, and supportive housing.

The Community Connections Center in South Norwalk provides a safe, supportive, partial day social and recreational opportunity for homeless individuals. Most are clients from the Norwalk or Westport shelters; all have limited resources and difficulty coping with day-to-day expectations. With its non-structured atmosphere, the Community Connections Center is the first step toward engaging clients in needed treatment and rehabilitation.

Requirements

Volunteers must purchase and deliver lunches by 12 noon on a designated Sunday. Volunteers can commit to one time, or provide lunch on a scheduled basis.
