“1999 Homelessness Count and Needs Assessment of Middlesex County”
for Middletown Supportive Housing Coalition
by Mollie Finnan, Patrick Keegan, Sarah Leberstein, and José Stevenson Rodríguez
The Middletown Supportive Housing Coalition (MSHC) is a coalition of Greater Middletown’s homeless advocates and social service agencies that provides a “Continuum of Care” for the area’s homeless individuals and families. The MSHC receives funding for its continuum of care programs primarily from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This year, the coalition enlisted the support of four students from Wesleyan University in conducting a count and needs assessment of the county’s homeless population.
