Frequently Asked Questions

Who can come to the HCC?
Anyone from Bristol, Berlin, New Britain, Southington, or Plainville that is housing unstable or experiencing unsheltered homelessness.
How do I get referred?
No referral is necessary- when you come to the facility, ask for an assessment for drop-in services, and an FSC employee will sit down with you to connect you to services.  
What should I bring?
It's always helpful to bring your ID and identifying documents in case a referral to shelter or housing can be made.  Please don't bring drugs, alcohol, or weapons into the space.
