Pacific House, in partnership with the City of Stamford, has developed this project that was in jeopardy of not being developed with the prior owner.
The house will offer 4 one-bedroom apartments and 2 two-bedroom apartments and provide permanent affordable housing for eight formerly homeless individuals.
The Recovery Program is operated in-house in collaboration with Liberation Programs and serves up to 12 clients. The goal is to help participants adopt a more stable lifestyle without the use of substances, and each year a ceremony is held to celebrate the graduates. This year a record number of clients proudly accepted their certificates of graduation!
This event, held on February 23, 2018 to benefit young adult clients living at Pacific House was a great success! Sponsors and guests raised more than $160,000 for the Young Adult Program at the shelter and enjoyed decadent desserts and food tastings paired with exceptional musical talent from local high schools, performing to show their support for young people struggling with homelessness in our community. Thank you for your support!
Gateway deeply affordable housing property was opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Evonne Klein, CT State Dept. of Housing Commissioner and Ellen Bromley, representing Stamford Mayor David Martin along with State Senator Carlo Leone and Congressman Jim Himes.
Pacific House is very proud of Board of Directors Vice Chair Chris Tate on the honor presented by New Canaan Community Foundation: 2016 Hall of Fame Volunteer Recognition Award for his dedication to serving our clients and helping lift up those who struggle with homelessness.
