Halfway Home is designed as a Comprehensive Employment Center for, “the least of these”: those with substance use disorder, those who are homeless, or those returning home from incarceration. We will provide housing with diverse on site employment which sets us apart from other agencies seeking to run a shelter, provide employment or substance use assistance. We fully understand that everyone within our facility may not want to be employed through any of the employers within our facility. That is when we can take advantage of training which will be offered through the New Britain Board of Education for advanced manufacturing or use WIOA services at Capital Workforce Partners American Job Center. At the same time we intend to offer onsite staff responsible for finding actual employment for those who have completed provided training.
We are currently collaborating with the Black Ministerial Alliance of New Britain as they develop the MLK Corridors Initiative. Our Pastor and Founder is the Chairperson of the Initiatives Community and Economic Development Committee. We are currently seeking funding to initiate our Comprehensive Employment Center.
