No-Show Gala
May 20, 2021

No tux, no dress, no mask, no problem!

We are happy to announce that this year, instead of asking you to spend yet another hour in front of your laptop screen, New Reach is cordially inviting you to not attend our No-Show Gala. This fundraiser offers a unique opportunity to (not) bring together friends, families, partners, donors and volunteers BUT TO STILL HELP transform the lives of some of the most vulnerable families in New Haven and Bridgeport.

Best of all, because there is no dinner, no event to host, and no venue to rent…
100% of the proceeds go towards ending homelessness in Connecticut!

These sponsorship packages make it easy to help end homelessness, increase awareness, and reach hundreds of households and businesses across New Haven and Fairfield Counties.

We hope you’ll embrace this opportunity to stay at home in your best athleisurewear, eat delicious food of your own choosing, and take back your evening while supporting those in our community who have nowhere else to turn.

Visit our event page.

The Grand Opening of Portsea Place!

August 11, 2020

“The nonprofit New Reach and local and state partners officially launched the project, Portsea Place, with a ribbon-cutting at the building on Tuesday afternoon.  The building at 223 Portsea St. hosts eight efficiency-style apartments for people between the ages of 18 and 24 who have experienced housing instability…

…The model at Portsea Place is permanent supportive housing, this time for young adults. Each renter gets a subsidized apartment to live in indefinitely, with the support of a case manager, while they transition out of homelessness.”  Emily Hays, New Haven Independent.  Full article linked below.
