The Anthem BCBS of CT retirement club known as Blue Horizons, recently presented a check for $2,000 to Columbus House. Blue Horizons has almost 200 members, and has quarterly luncheons to socialize with colleagues and generate donations for local, non-national charities.  Due to COVID-19 the June and September luncheons were canceled, but continued to support the charities selected for those events.

Columbus House opened its doors in 1982 to provide services for men and women at least 18 years of age. Their mission is “To serve people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, by providing shelter and housing and by fostering their personal growth and independence.”

COVID-19 has impacted the number of people who can enter the shelters due to social distancing guidelines and financial support is appreciated as it relies on government grants and contributions from the private sector including businesses, foundations and individuals.
