The Windham Region No Freeze Project is a not-for-profit agency dedicated to the short and long-term survival of adults experiencing homelessness in our community. We reconnect people to stable housing, divert those at-risk from ever entering shelter, provide safe, temporary shelter when needed, and re-establish connections to the community and to human services. We collaborate on state and local initiatives that strive to end homelessness in Connecticut.

The Faces of Homelessness
Hundreds of people in our region face the prospect of homelessness every day. Every homeless person has a unique story. Many lose housing due to a financial crisis caused by a job loss, health emergency, or the end of a relationship. Some struggle with physical disabilities, mental illnesses or substance use disorders. Watch this video to meet some of the faces of homelessness.
