At the Housing Resource Center, we work with both renters and homeowners individually to identify why they are at risk of losing their housing, what resources they can access to help, identify and implement a plan for the immediate crisis, and plan for the prevention of future housing instability.

Our Housing Counseling Agency program includes the following:

One-on-one Counseling – each to include household budgeting, financial fitness education, and fair housing information


  • First-time homebuyer counseling (pre-purchase counseling required by CHFA programs)

  • Homeowner counseling (planning for maintenance, improvements, hiring contractors, and keeping the home affordable)

  • Foreclosure prevention counseling (resolve default, prepare court process)

  • Rental counseling (two types: eviction prevention or finding suitable affordable rental housing)

  • Disaster Recovery (accessing post-disaster services and/or programs as well as reconstruction/repair and mold remediation/lead hazard control guidance.)


Group Education Workshops - The schedule is coming soon


  • Pre-purchase homebuyer education (mortgage readiness)

  • Landlord education (for first-time homebuyers purchasing a 2-4 unit multifamily)

  • Financial fitness (household budgeting and planning skills to reach financial goals)

  • Disaster Preparedness (HUD, FEMA, and Connecticut State Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security)

On the streets, with a broken arm and pneumonia

One of the patients in our Respite Center last winter was a 59-year-old Groton man who had been sleeping outside.

Tom was pushing a shopping cart with all his belongings in it when he passed out and fell near Route 12.

He broke his arm and ended up at Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, where he learned he also had pneumonia.

A social worker told him about us (the hospital helps support the respite program).

"Without this I'd be homeless again," Tom said. "At my age and in my shape I can't do it anymore."

He stayed with us several weeks and the moved into an apartment we helped him find.
