“We thank the New Canaan Community Foundation for their generous continued support,” said Rafael Pagan Jr., Pacific House Executive Director. “This grant plays an important role in our clients’ transition to self-sufficiency. When hunger is cared for, clients are able to focus on the steps they can take to rebuild their lives.”
In 2016 Pacific House emergency shelter served almost 50,000 meals and provided nearly 25,000 bed nights to homeless men and young adults from our community. The organization provides these men and young adults with programs and services to help them get back on their feet and lead more independent lives. The vast majority of the shelter’s clients come from Greenwich, Stamford, Darien, New Canaan and the rest of Fairfield County.
Pacific House was one of 72 local organizations that received a grant from the New Canaan Community Foundation. The total amount distributed totaled over $670,000.
Lauren Patterson, President & CEO of the New Canaan Community Foundation, commented “On behalf of the foundation’s community of volunteers and donors, thank you for your critical work supporting our fellow neighbors. We are so pleased to continue our support for Pacific House.”
