Since 1990, New Reach has implemented best practices across the region to develop a continuum of housing intervention and supports – helping thousands of vulnerable households and families achieve stability and self-reliance.  Commitment to long-term impact, focused strategic planning, and talented leadership have grown New Reach from a single ten-bed shelter for women, into a leader in homelessness services.  Today, the agency provides a full spectrum of housing services that meet the varying and complicated needs of at-risk families, youth, and individuals.  From eviction prevention for public housing residents, to the development of affordable and supportive housing, and everything in between, New Reach services thousands each year throughout Fairfield and New Haven counties.

At New Reach, we embrace the dreams of those we serve and nurture those dreams with direction and encouragement.  New Reach builds bright futures on a foundation of housing, support, and services.  We aim for opportunity, we employ cutting-edge tools, we deliver success, and we honor the dignity of all those we serve.
