Home — Danbury

Off the Streets works to get currently homeless people out of shelters and the streets into housing.   We can act very quickly -- the transition from homelessness to a furnished room or apartment can take place within a day or two. We provide the following kinds of help:
  • Moral support and encouragement -- to help people believe that they can escape the trap of homelessness, and to help them retain their housing
  • Security deposits and other financial support
  • Furniture and household items
In the 7 years of our history, Off the Streets Danbury has taken over 500 people off the streets and into housing. Off the Streets is completely volunteer based.   Although we team with local social service agencies, we have no paid staff and minimal overhead.
