Supportive Housing

The Supportive Housing program provides formerly homeless adults the opportunity to learn the skills they need to maintain housing and independent living. The goal of the program is to reduce the cycle of homelessness and hospitalizations due to mental illness and substance abuse.

Family & Children's Agency is a member of Connecticut 211 Coordinated Access Network (CAN) and is the primary CAN site in Norwalk. 211 Coordinated Access Network provides one point of entry for anyone experiencing a housing crisis. 


What is Coordinated Access?

  • A standardized, assessment and referral process to access community resources within a geographic region for people experiencing a housing crisis or homelessness.
  • Individuals and Families call 2-1-1 from anywhere in the state to start the process.
  • 2-1-1 refers anyone experiencing a housing crisis to the CAN in the caller’s community. The CAN accesses available resources to address the client’s needs.
