    I have stayed there before. The staff is really good. I want a bed there now. How can I get one?

Description: Operating Hours: 24 hours per day, 7 days per week  

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. Preference may be given to residents of East Hartford. Staff speaks English and Spanish.

The shelter is open 24 hours a day for families whose children are four years or younger. 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.

To check on bed availability you must call 211. Sex offenders and arsonists are not accepted.

Residents must be:

    18 or older (or children with an adult)
    Open to case management with goals of housing
    Sober and able to walk
    Willing to follow shelter rules
    Able to care for themselves
