The 2016 Opening Doors Fairfield County Advocacy Fact Sheet was developed by the Partnership for Strong Communities [PSC] and the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness [CCEH], based on 2015 data from the Homeless Management Information System [HMIS]. The sheet illustrates progress made in ending homelessness both state-wide and in Fairfield County in particular. Also, it reflects the work left to do and resources needed to end chronic homelessness. Click here to view Fact Sheet.


Talent is the greatest resource we have to end homelessness. Opening Doors Fairfield County [ODFC] has numerous individuals working on the Coordinating Council; local, regional and state-wide initiatives; committees; community care teams and local efforts like Project Homeless Connect.
