Event Description

Background

The Fair Haven Family Stroll is a festival and fundraiser to increase awareness about the importance of high-quality early childhood education while highlighting family-friendly resources in the Fair Haven community.

Held annually since 2011, the Fair Haven Family Stroll has been a tremendous success, bringing together hundreds of adults and children with community-based organizations and service providers. Generous philanthropic sponsorship has come from organizations such as Friends Center for Children; United Way; Trust for Learning; Alfresco Landsape and Design; Brewery Square; Webster Bank; Carmody Torrace Sandak & Hennessey LLP; Tyco Printing; Eder Family Foundation; Elite Property Services, Inc.; GHP; Parrett, Porto, Parese & Colwell, P.C.; and T.M. Byxbee Company.

The Day

All families are invited to enjoy our celebration, Saturday May 5th 2018, from 10 am to 2 pmWith a suggested donation of $10, families can help meet an urgent need for increased access to quality early childhood education.

Registration begins at the welcome tables at 10 am at the entrance to Quinnipiac River Park at the corner of Front St. and Exchange St.

The event starts with families walking along the 1.5 mile loop around the Quinnipiac River—over two bridges and through the historic riverfront district of Fair Haven.

After the stroll, the festival activities begin: drums, parachute play, puppets, face painting, food vendors, ballet, bubbles, yoga, arts and crafts, and a whole lot of door prizes.

Hand in hand with the entertainment is valuable information from over 35 community resources partners in the area, each highlighting resources available to families in Fair Haven and greater New Haven, from health clinics and healthy food to literacy to safety.

As a fundraiser, the Family Stroll helps increase access to high-quality early childhood education through donations, sponsorships, registration fees, and pledges—contributions that empowerFriends Center for Children and Elm City Montessori School to serve more families in the community.

In the case of inclement weather, the rain date will be May 19th.

What Zombies Can Teach Us About Vibrant Communities

This month, LISC and Cornell University will co-sponsor a conference on comprehensive approaches to turning vacant and “zombie” homes into community assets—and upending the conditions that create them in the first place. Helene Caloir, director of LISC’s $75 million New York State Housing Stabilization Fund, describes how this work is part and parcel of the broad challenges of revitalizing neighborhoods, dismantling racial inequity and sparking economic mobility.

“Café, Cultura, Vida”

As Hispanic Heritage Month comes to a close, we checked in with Sandra Flores, owner of Azukar Coffee, a small business percolating on the South Side of Phoenix that shows just how important a local gathering place can be to a neighborhood.

Changing Health by Changing the Community

In an op-ed for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and Howard Kern, president and CEO of Sentara Healthcare, describe how their new $100 million will take aim at the social determinants of health in Virginia. Investing in housing, job training and placement, education and transportation, among other requisites of a healthy life, are key to closing the life expectancy gap and creating a strong economy, they argue. Now is the time for corporations, nonprofits and charitable organizations to play leadership roles in making those investments a reality.
