Support our Success

The founders of Amos House did more than just imagine when they came together in 1986. Five churches in the Greater Danbury, Connecticut area recognized the need for a program and a place for homeless women and their children to transition to permanent housing. And they set to work envisioning, designing and building what was to become Road to Home at Amos House; the centerpiece of which is a residential living facility which opened its doors in 1989. The support of the community was and is integral to the program’s ongoing success.

With your help’

Get Involved

Road to Home at Amos House depends on YOUR support.  Program fees paid by residents do not cover all needs.  And while operating costs are kept to a minimum, monies are needed to staff the house appropriately.  The State of Connecticut Department of Housing no longer funds programs like Road to Home.  Our ability to operate is therefore contingent on  contributions from local corporations and religious organizations, grants and importantly, private individuals like you.
