Columbus House Offers Housing for Veterans

CT Style

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — News 8 along with Liberty Bank are proud to Salute Our Troops this Fourth of July.

Liberty Bank has teamed up with the Columbus House to support Shepherd Home, a supportive housing apartment building for veterans.

Joining us via Zoom is the CEO of Columbus House, Margaret Middleton along with tenant Charles Holtz.

Shepherd Home is a supportive housing apartment building for 32 formerly homeless Veterans owned by Columbus House. It is not a shelter, rather, it is a permanent home for Veterans.

The following are covered:

  • Permanent Housing for Veterans
  • Support Services for Veterans
  • Community collaboration among the City of Middletown and numerous partners
  • Homelessness can and does happen to anyone
  • The pandemic will only make the situation worse when the moratorium on evictions ends in CT

If you are in an immediate housing crisis, please call 2-1-1 for statewide resources and shelter referrals.

Columbus House opened its doors as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1982 to provide shelter for single, adult men and women in New Haven. At that time, they were expected only to provide basic humanitarian relief—shelter and a meal—to the growing homeless population. In the past 20 years, however, they have shifted our focus from managing homelessness to ending homelessness.
