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.
