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 (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 1500 annually) as a food pantry, distributing food for nearly 114,000 meals.

In the best of times - 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.
Northwest Corner Gives
FISH is honored and thankful…
Northwest Corner Gives is an online giving platform created by the Northwest Connecticut Community Foundation to help organizations build awareness and raise matching funds. FISH is raising funds for our $40,000 goal. The Community Foundation has already matched 50% of our campaign goal through its Northwest Corner Gives: Covid-19 Rapid Response Fund. The Foundation will continue to match all gifts made on a dollar-for-dollar basis until we reach our goal!
If you choose to make a donation, and we possibly have met our goal, you may still donate and FISH will receive your gift. Please visit - www.northwestcornergives.org – and visit our FISH page. And special thanks already to the Lakeridge community for your huge effort to help us make our match, as well as the New York Sky Blues, Dymax, and several other wonderful donors supporting us in our Mission at FISH!
