Faith Housing of Fairfield County

Jill came to the Fairfield County Emergency Shelter (FCES) with nothing.  The 58-year-old woman had no home and had lost her job because of physical and mental health problems. The FCES staff came to her aid and linked her to a handful of community services to meet her many needs. 

Using an FCES-provided list of apartments for the elderly and the disabled, Jill found a place to live where she wouldn’t have to pay rent due to her lack of income, and she was able to use her tax refund to pay her electric bill.
 
Now in her new place, Jill is continuing her treatment and is so appreciative of the assistance that she received.
