Members of the St. Rita Knights of Columbus recently cooked hot dogs and hamburgers for residents of Columbus House in New Haven. Columbus House, a 501c3, not-for-profit organization, offers a broad array of programs and services for the homeless of Southern Connecticut.

Last year over 100,000 meals were served to over 4,000 people. Each year, Columbus House is able to help many chronically homeless adults break the cycle and overcome their addictions, obtain mental health treatment and find housing. Our success is attributable to a wonderful staff of over 85 people, all of whom are compassionate and who are credentialed and certified as necessary.
