WYSH House

What is WFC’s WYSH House?

WFC’s WYSH House is a component of the Project REACH program. Project REACH (Reaching Every Adolescent to Create Hope) provides services that empower youth ages 18 to 24 to make choices in the best interest of their safety, well-being and future selves through intervention, education, case management, supportive counseling and referral services.

The WYSH House project addresses the unmet need of youth experiencing homelessness in the state of Connecticut. According to a Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness report from the 2018 Youth Outreach and Count, estimates over 5,000 youth under age 25 reported being homeless or unstably housed in Connecticut in January 2020.

WFC’s WYSH House has been in the news lately as the construction of the new building has been progressing along.

With the addition of WYSH House, WFC will be able to provide non-time limited supportive housing and prevention services to youth and young adults, ages 18-24, that have experienced homelessness.
