    We need your help!!! Connecticut has a goal of ENDING youth homelessness by 2020!!! But we can’t help those in need if we don’t know they are struggling. That’s why every year, a “youth count” is done to count how many homeless and unstably housed youth their are in CT. Many Youth don’t even realize they are unstably housed or homeless. Do you know anyone like this?
    The youth count will be done in TWO ways!
    1. ‘Come and be counted’ you can go to one of several locations to fill out the youth count survey, you will be rewarded with FREE FOOD!!! And it will be hot and DELICIOUS!
    2. ‘Go and Ask’ volunteers will be posted at several locations across Fairfield county to survey youth and find out if they are homeless or unstably housed. These youth will also be rewarded with a gift to be determined! Last year it was giftcards to McDonalds!
    If you are homeless or at risk, we will be able to help place you somewhere. Nobody should have to wonder where they will be sleeping or eating. If you need help, 2-1-1 is here to serve you.
    The Fairfield County youth count will take place January 24th-30th, 2018
    More details to come!!
