STAMFORD, CT—Today, Senator Carlo Leone (D-Stamford) applauded the announcement of a grant for Stamford’s Shelter for the Homeless. The $217,928 state grant is a part of Connecticut’s Nonprofit Grant Program. The funding is a part of the program’s recent allocation of $15 million to 34 nonprofits across the state.
“Anytime we can help the homeless it is a good day in Connecticut,” said Senator Leone. “For 30 years The Shelter for the Homeless in Stamford has provided services for the most vulnerable in our city. Many thanks to the Connecticut’s Nonprofit Grant Program and to Governor Malloy for the support of this important community program.”
The Shelter for the Homeless, located at 597 Pacific Street, will use the funds for energy improvements to the facility. The shelter houses between 60 and 82 men and during weather emergencies that number can reach as high as 110 people.
