Eddy Shelter The Connection Inc
An emergency homeless shelter for single adult men and women in Middlesex County. This is a non profit organization.
The Mission of Eddy Shelter of Middlesex County is to provide leadership in identifying and promoting innovative solutions to ending homelessness, while allowing for each individual’s unique capability. We accomplish this by meeting basic human needs with a warm bed and hot shower, providing skills to live in the community, resources and referrals to end homelessness and support to decrease the return to homelessness by utilizing prevention techniques.
Located on the grounds of Connecticut Valley Hospital in Middletown, the shelter has the ability to house 30 adults. The number of beds increases to 40 during the winter months. Case management is provided to shelter guests to help them obtain housing, connect them with health resources, if needed, and employment opportunities. The shelter is involved with the statewide campaign, Reaching Home, to end homelessness in the state of Connecticut by creating 10,000 units of supportive housing over the next 10 years.
