Diversion Services

Through a partnership with the Women and Family Life Center in Guilford and the United Way of Greater New Haven, the Beth-El Center provides shelter diversion services along the Connecticut shoreline from Milford to Madison.

Our diversion services help to prevent homelessness by identifying and supporting individuals and families throughout the shoreline area who are housing unstable and at the brink of homelessness.  We assist those who are at high risk for homelessness by identifying alternate housing arrangements and connecting them with services to help them return to permanent housing without entering into the emergency homeless response system.

This program can help to remove transportation barriers that threaten or prevent employment, help pay utility and rental arrears necessary for landlord mediation and provide security deposit assistance for those who can stabilize their current living situation without shelter intervention.
