Amos House transitional living reopens renovated facility in Danbury

Amos House transitional living for women and children will reopen its doors in Danbury today.  Three women and four children will be housed following today's ribbon cutting ceremony.  Amos House, a nonprofit organization formed in 1986 by five churches, has been closed since last June due to a renovation project.  The upgrades were hindered by a pipe burst in February that caused water damage.  A $150,000 state Department of Housing grant is covering part of the work.  There's a new roof and windows, heat pumps were replaced and upgrades done to the kitchen and laundry room.  The facility helps families transition between living in a shelter and taking the next step to independent living.  The facility has 25 rooms and can house up to five families, depending on the numbers of people in each. Executive Director Jennifer Seeley says Amos House is dedicated to breaking the cycle of homelessness by ensuring that female residents have the opportunity to achieve the competencies required for permanent, self-sufficient independent living.
