OUR MISSION

TO BREAK THE CYCLE OF HOMELESSNESS BY HELPING PEOPLE ACHIEVE -- AND MAINTAIN -- PERMANENT HOUSING AND STABILITY IN THEIR LIVES.

We are unique for four reasons

1. SCOPE OF HOUSING

By operating emergency shelters, transitional housing, permanent supportive housing, deeply affordable housing, and rapid rehousing we work across the spectrum of housing, allowing us to break the cycle of homelessness rather than provide only a temporary fix.                      

2. OUR COMPREHENSIVE     APPROACH

We address not just the physical component of homelessness (residential), but all the reasons a person becomes homeless (support services). Our ability to deliver comprehensive integrated services is a key element of our success.   

3. SCOPE OF PEOPLE           WE SERVE

By serving single women, single men, families, people with mental illness, and persons living with HIV/AIDS, we work across the spectrum of people who are homeless rather than with just one segment of those in need.

4. OUR FOCUS ON                RESULTS

We measure success not by how many people we serve, but by the ultimate goal: how many people achieve - and maintain - permanent housing and stability in their lives.


Who We Are

We are one of the largest providers of services to the homeless in Connecticut and the largest in lower Fairfield County.

Inspirica serves individuals and families who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.  

Each night we house approximately 350 people and each year we serve more than 850 people (including 250 children).

We operate 12 facilities in lower Fairfield County and provide an extensive array of support services, including vocational training, workforce education, job placement, housing placement, job & housing retention support, early childhood & parenting services, children’s services, counseling, case management, and much more.

We are one of only a handful of organizations in the nation that address the physical component of homelessness and its underlying root causes on a single, powerful end-to-end platform.

Our approach to serving homeless families ensures we achieve our mission to break the cycle of homelessness.
