SECHA provides advocacy services to promote affordable housing within southeastern Connecticut. Although we try to assist those in need, SECHA does not provide emergency housing services. We do provide links to valuable contacts who might be helpful in an emergency situation. We rely upon the local community and established shelters, and housing services groups who provide homeless prevention services. For information about emergency housing shelters or other contacts, please see our “Resources” page on this web site.
A regional approach is used to analyze housing issues with emphasis on the shortage of affordable housing. Our opportunity is to assist municipalities, developers, community leaders, and others with information to create additional housing options, and remove barriers to affordable housing. Our role as a facilitator is to bring together diverse housing constituencies to address imbalances to help solve housing shortages in southeastern CT.
