Education is the foundation for a good life, setting an individual on a path of personal fulfillment and financial security. Good schools help stabilize neighborhoods, create a more skilled workforce, reduce crime, and improve the quality of life for everyone.

  • More than 800 children ages birth through five benefited from high-quality early care and education opportunities.
  • More than 1,200 kindergarten students and their families received a home visit welcoming them to school along with a children’s book and helpful information.
  • More than 1,300 school-age youth benefited from mentoring or counseling services.
  • Nearly 1,350 school-age youth benefited from high-quality afterschool programs.
  • 90 partner organizations are providing prevention services to over 2,500 students in 8 New Haven Public Schools, leading to improved attendance, decreased behavior problems and improved school climate.
  • Over 1,000 teachers and other youth service providers have been trained by the New Haven Trauma Coalition, helping to make New Haven a trauma informed community.
