Mission Statement

Healing homelessness and fighting poverty one life at a time.

Description

Homeless women. Homeless children. Homeless families. Community Connections serves the invisible homeless - the ones you don't see because they're busy putting their lives back together. Over 300 homeless families were helped last year.

We operate a childcare center that cares for the homeless children from the local shelters as well as the children of our own residents in the homeless transitions program. We provide all the support services required to help these women, children and familes re-gain independence and self-sufficiency and become productive members of society. We provide literacy and adult education opportunities; financial planning; soft and hard job skills training; parenting classes, afterschool programs, mentoring and homework assisdtance and tutoring. Our Healthy Families programs served 750 people in 13 zip-codes, providing young parents with the skills needed to ensure success for their children, and significantly reducing the risk of child neglect and abuse among high risk families. After school and summer camp programs provided a safe place for 3800 children to grow and develop, learn and try out their wings of independence. We believe that with your help we can make a difference in our community - one life at a time.
