Serve the Addicted
Feed the Hungry
Nearly 25% of Waterbury residents live below the poverty line. Many people struggle to put food on the table because 70% of their paycheck goes to pay rent. Our food pantry program provides food free of charge to anyone who is hungry, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic group.
Shelter the Homeless
We offer short-term, temporary, emergency housing free of charge to those in need of safe refuge, regardless of age, gender, national origin, ethnic background, religion, or socioeconomic group. Often men staying in our shelter will enter our Recovery Program to address issues related to substance abuse.
