Be Homeful for the Holidays

The CT REALTORS® Foundation is proud to once again partner with the Connecticut Coalition to End Homelessness for our fourth annual “be homeful for the holidays” campaign. This campaign raises emergency assistance funds to help local families stay in the comfort of their homes and avoid experiencing the trauma of homelessness. Experiencing homelessness as a child is a prime indicator for experiencing homelessness as an adult, so our efforts can literally break the cycle of homelessness for generations to come.

For every $25 donation, a Paddington book, bear or blankie will also be gifted to a child living in a shelter over the holidays.  It’s a win-win for CT’s children in need!

Dog Days of Summer Fundraiser

A huge thank you to our many generous donors who helped raise $2,100 for our Dog Days of Summer campaign that has been split between three benefitting animal rescue organizations this year: CT Dog Gone Recovery Volunteer Network, Meriden Humane Society and Sadie Mae Foundation in addition to the mountain of supply donations collected at our July BOD meeting.  We’re also happy to report that all of the animals features on CTR.tv's “5 in 5” segments have been adopted!  Until next year…
