2002: Eddy Shelter

“A Report for the Eddy Shelter”

for The Eddy Shelter

by Amy Cirincone, Ruth Corley, Wesley Look, and Mia Unger


We studied how the Eddy Shelter, a thirty-day and thirty-bed emergency shelter serving single adults in Middlesex County, can improve its services to help guests transition out of the Shelter and into more stable living conditions. Thirty interviews were completed with current and former Eddy Shelter guests. Research and analysis were conducted by four students in the Community Research Seminar at Wesleyan University.
