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.

Last year, LISC’s national network of 130 Financial Opportunity Center® sites served more than 25,000 people looking to launch careers, build savings and credit, or buy a home. LISC’s Jennifer McClain takes a closer look at the ingredients – one-on-one coaching, new data management tools, storytelling – and determination needed to build a program that truly empowers community members to build careers and boost financial health.
In its 18 months of existence, Project 10X, LISC’s high-octane initiative to help close racial wealth and opportunity gaps and invest in the wellbeing of Black people and communities, has already raised $663 million, more than 60 percent of its total 10-year goal of $1 billion. The money is being deployed in a range of innovative ways, and its impact is taking shape.
The racist attack in East Buffalo is a horrific reminder of the threats facing people of color and the communities where they live. As community developers, we must continue to design solutions that tackle systemic racism and, at the same time, address the violence that is so often its byproduct. LISC CEO Lisa Glover has more.
