When I got divorced and my husband failed to pay child support, I almost lost the rented condo I and my two daughters live in.Extended Family of Connecticut, Inc gave us the funds we needed to pay our rent until child support started. If we had had to move, it would have been the 5th move in two years and my children would have had to go to yet another school. Thanks to EFCT, Inc. we were able to stay where we were and my kids were able to stay in the schools they love.

Our agency was in need of support for a family that was in crisis. They were moving into an apartment, and the funding for their security deposit was eliminated during their move. As their housing coordinator, I called Extended Families of Connecticut, and the staff was very willing to help out this needy family.
Since the family was helped by Extended Family, the parents and the baby have successfully been housed in an apartment and continue to pay their rent. Extended Family was a life-saver in this desperate situation. They were resourceful, compassionate, and a great liason for our agency. We greatly appreciated their generosity!

This organization fills a very special niche. As one of the founding 'mothers' of the CT Assocation to End Homelessness and a long-time manager of several differnt organizations that serve homeless people, I am keely aware of how many people are 'one paycheck away from being homeless'. This organization is uniquely able to to help families avoid stepping over that so very delicate line from which it is often so difficult to return.
