|FISH Friends in Service to Humanity of Northwestern Connecticut, Inc.|
The mission of FISH NWCT is to provide the most basic of human needs- food, shelter and hope. Since opening its doors in 1972, FISH has evolved into the largest emergency homeless shelter in the NWCT corner, providing families, individuals and veterans a safe and secure haven, as well as serving the residents of area communities as a food pantry.
Our goal at the shelter is to provide a friendly, communal family setting to our neighbors in need. Our diversity is serving infants through seniors.
The programs and social services at FISH NWCT are critical to some for their survival and well being. What makes FISH extra special is that we have two Case Managers overseeing the resources, medical and mental health needs, employment opportunities, and housing possibilities to lead to a homeless resident's independent living future.
Amazing things happen for people under the roof at FISH NWCT!
