Since opening its doors in 1972, FISH/Friends in Service to Humanity of Northwestern Connecticut has evolved into the largest emergency shelter in the northwest corner of Connecticut, providing families, individuals and veterans a safe and secure haven, as well as serving the residents of area communities as a food pantry that is open four days a week.
Our goal is to provide a friendly and safe place to folks in need. The programs and social services at FISH are critical to some for their survival and well being. FISH provides the most basic of human needs - food, shelter and hope.
Amazing things happen for people under the roof at FISH! We welcome you to assist us in our mission of serving those neighbors in economic crisis and facing life challenges.
