What does a healthier New Haven look like? How can we build it?

 

The Health Equity Alliance and the Health Matters! Commission want to hear from you about what it takes to build a healthy New Haven. Your input will contribute to the creation of a video documentary that will be debuted during our Fall 2010 Visioning a Healthier City Conference and shared with stakeholders and key influencers in New Haven.

              

               Why talk about a healthy New Haven?

 

The health and wellbeing of New Haven depends not only on the health of its citizens but on the health of the community.

 

                Who is involved in this effort?

 

Partners and supporters from across local government and the New Haven community are working with us to create a Healthy New Haven!

 

               Why should you become involved in this effort?

 

A healthy New Haven begins with you! Through your support and participation, you and fellow Elm City residents will become a part of an ambitious and achievable goal of making New Haven a safer and healthier city in which to live.

Innovators and Idealists: Meet the 2019 Cohort of Rubinger Fellows

The winners of this year’s Michael Rubinger Community Fellowship award have long been focused on ways to expand economic opportunity and build safer, stronger communities. Through the fellowship program, they now have the chance to focus on transformative efforts they might not otherwise have the time or resources to pursue. “All of us in community development stand on the shoulders of local leaders,” said Michael Rubinger, the former LISC CEO for whom the program is named. “When we nurture them, we expand the nation’s capacity to create jobs, build housing, improve health and fuel cohesive communities.”

A Farewell to the Rubinger Fellows Class of 2017-2018

Our ten inaugural Rubinger Fellows have come to the end of their fellowship year, and our hats are off to them! In addition to the manuscripts, playbooks, poems, sermons and other creations the fellows produced to cap the year, they shared some reflections on their highlights and lessons learned as Rubinger Fellows. Watch the videos to hear what they had to say.

"By supporting these programs through the Citizens Charitable Foundation, Citizens is helping us create opportunities for more people to raise their standards of living—and, in the process, contribute to economic growth in their communities,” said Maurice A. Jones, LISC president and CEO.
