About Us

Our Story

On a January evening in 2001, approximately 200 concerned residents of the Town of New Milford along with local clergy and Town Officials gathered together to discuss the needs of our neighbors that for whatever reason were living on the streets, doorways, or tents in the Town of New Milford. It was decided that evening that a temporary emergency shelter system was needed to offer a safe warm place to sleep at night through the winter months to our neighbors in their time of need.
