Housing project to help Connecticut youths aging out of foster care
HAMDEN — A new low-income housing complex opening in Hamden will include homes for youths who are aging out of Connecticut’s foster care system.
Democratic Gov. Dannel Malloy and state Housing Commissioner Evonne Klein will attend Monday’s ribbon cutting for Geller Commons, which is being developed by the nonprofit New Reach housing organization.
The 33-unit complex will include seven apartments dedicated to 18- to 24-year-olds who have been homeless or are deemed to be at-risk for homelessness because they are no longer eligible for foster care.
Another 10 apartments will be set aside for adults who have been homeless for at least one year or who are disabled and have been homeless at least four times in the past three years.
