The Partnership for Strong Communities (PSC) and a group of advocacy organizations, government agencies, and community providers are leading a campaign to end homelessness in the state. Guided by the vision that “No one should experience homelessness,” the Reaching Home Campaign and Opening Doors—Connecticut (the “Campaign”) emphasizes housing as an essential platform for human and community development. To support the Campaign’s work as it moves past planning and towards implementation and sustainability, the Melville Charitable Trust approached The Building Movement Project (BMP) to conduct a mid-point learning assessment.
