How We Work
We create solutions to Greater New Haven’s most pressing challenges in the areas of education, health, and financial stability. Every day, we:
- Connect our community knowledge with strong relationships with partners
- Take an action-oriented outlook
- Ground our work in racial and social justice
Every person deserves the opportunity to live to their full potential, and together with partners, donors and volunteers work to make that happen.
Meeting Immediate Needs and Creating Long-Term Change
Education, health and financial stability are the building blocks of a successful life. When someone has strong support in one of these areas, it can make it easier to overcome challenges in the others. This holistic approach to meeting community challenges, like meeting basic needs, access to education, and helping neighbors build a path to financial stability, is how we create long-term change in Greater New Haven.
Services, resources and encouragement children need for healthy growth, development and lifelong success.
Programs and strategies so every person has the opportunity to thrive financially and build a strong future.
Addressing the social and environmental factors that create inequities in health outcomes in our community.
Approaches that prioritize prevention and ensure that when homelessness happens, it is brief and non-recurring.
Services that provide access to nutritious, affordable food regardless of income, race, ethnicity, age, gender, or zip code.
Commitment to continued learning and action to foster an equitable, just, and inclusive community.
