The Community Corner Group is a Small Group with simple ways to organize share and have group discussion to improve our quality of life.

What's means quality of life for us? Is the product of the interplay among social, health, economic and environmental conditions which affect human and social development.

Crime prevention through environmental design

We are a small group of neighbors in Fair Haven who wish to create a network of residents. This working group will give us the chance to get know to each other by exchanging ideas and sharing the desire to improve the quality of life and safety in our neighborhood. All are welcome – we encourage all skills and talents. As long as you can participate and spend time to help our group, we want you!

We understand the hard work we do everyday and how busy we are with our personal responsibilities at home and work. Please join us in this need to improve our families well being, and their stake in the community. As each other’s neighbors, we play an important roll with each others daily routines.

No race, color, culture, age, or religion can deny what we all have in common. We all are living in New Haven. Furthermore, we also strive for a safe neighborhood to raise our families, where our children can grow and build better skills that will help them to succeed. This can only be done by setting a good example for them to follow. Our children deserve better and they are the future!

Here’s what we are proposing:

•1) Street Clean Up, twice a year (1 to 2 hours) once in the spring and once in the fall. LCI will provide materials, tools and set up trash collection.

•2) Planting trees and flowers, twice a year (2 to 3 hours) to beautify our streets. Trees, plants, flowers and mulch are available to us and will be provided by *URI for free, but ONLY to groups of people who want to work as a community.

•3) Recycling (every day) which can be as simple as separating our garbage, plastics, and papers.

We believe that we can all invest 10 TO 12 HOURS EACH YEAR to make the difference for our families and feel good about ourselves by creating a real community environment.

We hope that you will have an interest in accepting this warm invitation.

Thank you,

The Community Corner Group

Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Leadership Is a Process of Community

Martin Luther King, Jr. did not march for freedom and equality alone. He was the visionary voice for the collective effort of hundreds of thousands of people.When we deconstruct leadership, we will not find a hero at the heart of leadership. We will find community.

What to Do When the Door to the Status Quo Opens Slightly

There are times when you manage to open the door ever so slightly to the status quo -- organizations and institutions that have power and resources to back up their perspective and mandate. To make inroads you must walk through that door and engage with the very people you think are the cause of the problem.

Freeing Yourself from the Consumer Culture

Peter talks with Eric Zimmer, host and producer of The One You Feed, named one of the Best Health Podcasts of All Time by The Huffington Post. They discuss the four pillars of the free market ideology, our longing for perfection, how questions bring us together and answers alienate us . . . and much more.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

ProMedica CEO Joins LISC Board of Directors

Randy Oostra, CEO of Toledo-based ProMedica Health System, brings 40 years of health care and management expertise to LISC’s national board. His appointment comes at a time when LISC is intensifying its work to upend health disparities across the U.S., by investing in the well-being of people and places. It’s a strategy that Oostra has pioneered through ProMedica, boosting good health outcomes and opportunity for local communities.

To Solve Youth Homelessness, Talk to Young People

As a teenager, Da’Quan Wilson was homeless, sleeping in friends’ apartments, at relatives’ homes and even in a cemetery. Today, he works as a “Community Connector” with LISC Philadelphia partner People’s Emergency Center (PEC), reaching out to young people who may be undergoing the same sorts of challenges he once did. In our increasingly digital age, community connectors meet people face-to-face, to share information about resources, build neighborhood connection and invite community participation. Many become local leaders in the process.

One Day of Service Among 8,395 (that’s 23 years)—and Counting

The day we memorialize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s legacy is special indeed—and so are the other 364 days a year when LISC AmeriCorps members serve their communities, as they have for the past two plus decades.
