Thank You to the Callahan Family for Your Generous Support!

Volunteer Mike Callahan and his family have provided agency employees with lunch two times a week throughout the partial shutdown (required due to the corona-virus crisis). The employees are helping to make certain agency clients receive a minimum level of service, including daily “to go” meals, cleaning supplies, and masks. The agency has also kept the Fellowship Inn open so our homeless clients have access to free showers and laundry facilities. We are so grateful to the Callahan family for their generosity and recognition of the sacrifices is staff is making to keep the agency at least partially open.

Congratulations to the staff and Board of Directors of Fellowship Place for the vision, dedication, and hard work that has helped the agency grow to meet the ever-changing needs of individuals who suffer from serious mental illness.  State Representative Toni Walker of New Haven was also honored for legislative advocacy.

Greetings from Camp CONNRI

Members of the Fellowship Place community enjoyed a wonderful vacation last week at Camp CONNRI, a vacation and retreat center sponsored by the Salvation Army. Activities ranged from boating & swimming to making S’mores around the fire pit. Our annual trip to Camp CONNRI provides our clients a welcome respite from urban life and a chance to try new things like shuffleboard and archery. Special thanks to supporters of the Birgitta Johnson Campership fund for donations to cover some of the costs associated with the trip and to the Salvation Army for their warm hospitality.
