Exciting News for 100 Day Challenge


As you know, Opening Doors of Greater New Haven is working diligently to achieve ambitious goals get people housed through the Rapid Results Team.  Housing Liaisons and Housing Coordinators collaborate to match people who are homeless to safe, affordable housing.  Sometimes, a small expense can pose a huge obstacle in this process. 

The Yale Hunger and Homelessness Action Project (YHHAP), Yale University and the Melville Charitable Trust have contributed a total of $25,000 to establish a Flex Fund exclusively for use by the 100 Day Challenge Team.  Flex Funds may be for Security Deposits, fees related to identification, furniture, moving expenses and household items.  Housing Liaison Team members are authorized to submit requests for these funds.  Columbus House, Inc.  serves as the fiduciary these funds.

If you are serving a person who is being housed through the 100 Day Challenge and you are aware of a need for funds for these purposes, contact the Housing Liaison to assist the person you serve.   Columbus House, Inc. has developed an expedited process to prepare checks made out to 3rd parties to secure approved services and goods.
