“There is a lot that happens around the world we cannot control. We cannot stop earthquakes, we cannot prevent droughts and we cannot prevent all conflicts, but when we know where the hungry, the homeless and the sick exist, then we can help.” – Jan Schakowsky
To help the homeless population of Waterbury, Center for Human Development (CHD) has a unique program called the CHD Hospitality Center, located at 693 East Main St., Waterbury, CT, The Hospitality Center offers an array of services to help the city’s homeless move towards their endeavors and their goals of employment and housing.
Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., participants are welcomed to a safe environment where staff are compassionate, understanding, and motivating.
