Welcome to Beth-El Center

The Beth-El Center's mission is to alleviate homelessness and hunger in the Milford area through shelter, support services, advocacy and community education in partnership with the faith-based community and public and private organizations. 

Our vision is to care for and meet the needs of the hungry and homeless and to prevent and end homelessness.

Beth-El Center is a 501c3, nonprofit organization that has two programs: a 34 bed homeless shelter and a food service program.  [ more ]

Call 2-1-1! To Help Those in Need of Housing and Shelter

Connecticut's Coordinated Entry guidelines now require that anyone seeking emergency shelter and housing go through the state's 2-1-1 system. Just dial 2-1-1, select Option 3 and then select Option 1.

Callers in need of housing or shelter will reach a trained Housing Specialist who will perform an initial assessment, make referrals as needed and schedule an appointment with a duty services coordinator. This does not guarantee immediate shelter or housing placement. [ more ]
