Housing and Homelessness

Bethlehem House

Serving  Stratford


The Bethlehem House is a permanent supportive housing program for families with low income and have experienced homelessness. The program provides housing and support for up to 9 formerly homeless families, providing them with apartments and other services including transportation assistance, household supplies and referrals.


  • Residents work with case managers for the skills and support they need as they move towards self-sufficiency.
  • These two multi-story homes hold nine partially furnished apartments, where families have their own home in a quiet and safe environment.
  • Residents pay an affordable rent and they are expected to work.
