Connections of Cumberland County operates the only walk-in Day Resource Center with comprehensive case management designed to serve women and children who are homeless or facing homelessness. Its goal is to collaborate with all community resources to assist clients to become safe and self-sufficient.

Since beginning operations in July of 2014, CCC has served 1,192 women and 1,547 children (as of July 15, 2019). Connections developed as a result of research on homelessness by the Women’s Giving Circle of Cumberland County.  These research findings have indicated an ongoing major need for resources for the growing number of local homeless women and children.
