Serving CT's Homeless

Affordable Housing

Housing is the most important basic need each of our clients must have to gain stability.

Community Supportive Housing Services is a combination of housing and case management services intended to help support individuals and families coming from homelessness. Supportive housing is a “best practices” national model proven to transition individuals from homelessness to stable and affordable housing with wrap-around supports. Chrysalis Center has provided supportive housing services for over twenty years. To make a donation to support our housing programs, visit: Support Housing
