Since its founding in 1990, the Trust has focused on solving homelessness by providing $6 – 10 million in annual grants to organizations working to ensure all people have a safe place to call home. We collaborate with advocates, organizers, providers, researchers, policymakers, and government working in our home state of Connecticut and across the country.

In 2021 we outlined a new vision for our work that is grounded in racial equity and focused on the people most impacted.

To make this vision a reality we make targeted investments that advance proven, lasting, and cost-effective solutions that enable people to reclaim their dignity and agency over their lives. We also explore new approaches that might increase the reach and success of current efforts.

Above all we are guided by our founders’ commitment: to make strategic, catalytic  investments in forward-thinking organizations that take risks, embrace best practices, and foster collaboration across sectors.
