AT A GLANCE
Homeless Resource Center
Since 1986, Operation Hope has been serving men, women and families who struggle with homelessness. In 2019 we launched a new homeless resource center, providing homeless outreach, intake, crisis resolution, diversion, and more. Getting people off the streets and into safe, stable housing is a number one priority.
Dedicated members of the community prepare, deliver and serve nearly 40,000 meals a year, providing lunch and dinner to over 50 people a day and giving scores of volunteers the opportunity to help our hungry neighbors.
With the help of dedicated volunteers and a myriad of donations, our food pantry provides at least 150,000 meals a year to over 800 local households – neighbors struggling to make ends meet.
Affordable Housing Program
Operation Hope currently owns or operates nearly 84 units of safe, affordable housing for individuals and families in Fairfield and the surrounding communities to help people who have struggled in the past remain successfully housed.
Housing First Programs
We collaborate on many initiatives to create housing and eliminate homelessness. We are a primary partner in the Bridgeport Housing First and CT Rapid Rehousing programs. Through efforts like these, we have helped hundreds of people affected by homelessness obtain stable housing and case management services to help them sustain housing success. We continue to seek appropriate partnerships that meet the needs of those most at risk.
Clinical Support Team
Our team of case managers and MSW-level clinical social workers are dedicated to helping those we serve meet their challenges successfully through specialized case management, targeted referrals, and other services to help residents achieve self-sufficiency.
With your help, Operation Hope will continue to provide people the opportunity to experience positive and lasting change.
