CELEBRATed 50 YEARS in 2022! We are resilient!!
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 our region's largest emergency homeless shelter (35 beds) in the NWCT corner, providing families, individuals and veterans a safe and secure haven as they await permanent supportive housing; as well as serving area residents (over 1200 annually) as a food pantry, distributing food for nearly 110,000 meals this past year.

Thank you to all who donated to Connecticut Community Foundation's "Give Local" campaign on April 25 & 26 to support FISH and our work with the homeless and the food insecure. Sponsored as a 36 hour on-line campaign, this fast paced donation campaign, gives a helping hand to many worthy nonprofits in our Greater Waterbury and Litchfield Hills region. We raised nearly $8000 thanks to our donors to support our operations at the FISH Food Pantry and FISH Homeless Shelter!
