Review for Norwalk Emergency Shelter, Inc., Norwalk, CT, USA
Homelessness is an emergency. Whether residents are chronically homeless due to psychiatric disorders or drug addictions, or non-chronically homeless due to job loss, abuse, or any number of other unlucky reasons, a shelter is first and foremost protection and safety. The Open Door Shelter provides all residents whatever services are required to create an exit strategy. The new Hope Works jobs training program offers residents who want it the chance to make it. Granted, it is not the Comfort Inn, but it adheres to all state health regulations and provides a temporary home for renewal and independence. The employees, volunteers, partners, corporate supporters, and board members are there to make a difference and do so on a daily basis.
