About Us

Cadets from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy provide a delicious evening meal every Wednesday.

An open door

for those who need it most.

The Homeless Hospitality Center is a place of safety and welcome to adults facing homelessness in southeastern Connecticut.

About 600 people will seek help this year. We welcome every individual as our guest at our shelter and Daytime Hospitality Center on State Pier Road in New London.

Founded in 2006, HHC collaborates with dozens of public and private programs and agencies to address the underlying causes of homelessness for each person and help him/her find permanent housing as quickly as possible.
