Hoops for the Homeless is a three-on-three basketball tournament started in New Britain in 2013 to benefit homeless youth within the city. This event has been scheduled for the last Saturday in April. This year’s event was cancelled due to Covid, however, we are planning to be back in spring of 2022.
Over the last seven years we have raised over $70,000, which has been given towards college scholarships for college bound New Britain High School graduates identified as being homeless, as well as programs and services that directly support children and families who are homeless in our community.
The event is produced in collaboration with the City of New Britain and the Downtown District, Consolidated School District of New Britain, New Britain Parks & Recreation Department, New Britain Police & Fire Departments, Friendship Service Center, Prudence Crandall Domestic Violence Center, Boys & Girls Club of New Britain, and Central Connecticut State University.
