Homeless shelter seeks help

The Stamford Shelter for the Homeless (SFH), which serves the Greenwich community, has begun what it calls “an ambitious, multi-year project” to try and expand its capacity of affordable, supportive housing to 50 units.

SFH will be getting state funding for this project, but will also need help from local partners in the community.

“To access and leverage this public money, we must have short-term funds available so we can move quickly to purchase the most attractive properties when they become available,” said SFH Executive Director Rafael Pagan Jr.

To accomplish this, SFH established a ‘Development Fund’ with a fund-raising goal of $500,000. In early May, SFH had already raised $135,000, including a $10,000 donation from First County Bank. Mr. Pagan called this a “significant contribution.”
