Mission

The Mission of ODFC is to prevent and end homelessness in Fairfield County.


The Solution

ODFC is ending homelessness through an emergency response system that prioritizes our community’s most vulnerable population and connects them to the most appropriate housing option. As a result, Fairfield County is seeing a significant decrease in chronic homelessness.

The Problem

Although Fairfield County is home to some of the wealthiest communities in the country, homelessness is still a reality for many residents. At this moment in time, in Fairfield County, there are 1,013 people experiencing homelessness, which includes 781 adults and 232 children.
