Description Interest
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

Neighbors of Castle, Main, Alton, Monroe,Market and Lombard streets and we still growing!

*Urban Resources Initiative (URI) is a community not-for-profit that works in conjunction with the School of Forestry and Environmental Studies at Yale University. Together, their dual mission is to foster community-based land stewardship and promote environmental education

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Recasting the Narratives That Shape Our Lives

A leader in journalism innovation, transformative change, and employee and community engagement describes how innovators in journalism are reimagining and experimenting with what journalism might look like today.

Rediscovering Welcome

Creating welcoming places is a key step to ensure we can all feel a sense of belonging and worthiness. To welcome means to really "see" the person walking through the door, to see their gifts and to be open to receiving help, wisdom and guidance from the person we are meeting or helping.

Strengthening the Role of Faith-Based Organizations to Support Emergency Preparedness

A new case study by the Tamarack Institute shows how faith groups can add great value to neighborhoods in responding to local emergencies.

LISC in the WSJ: Helping NYC Corner Stores Keep Up With Neighborhood Change

An article in The Wall Street Journal details a creative program to help neighborhood bodegas update their look and stock, and keep pace with demand as new, younger clientele moves in. Together with longtime partner Cypress Hills Local Development Corp, LISC is spearheading the "Commercial Corridor Challenge," supporting small businesses to prosper—not flounder—as demographics change.

Healthcare Partnerships That Help Heal People and Communities

In a blog for the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Healthcare Quarterly, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones makes the case for pioneering partnerships between healthcare organizations and community development, uniting to upend the roots of poor health. LISC’s collaborations with ProMedica and Bon Secours Health System, among other companies, are powerful examples of how our combined assets, knowledge and experience can begin to close America’s longevity gap.

Want to Stanch the Homelessness Crisis in California? Vote for This Bond

That’s the message in a powerful op-ed by LISC San Diego director Ricardo Flores for the Union-Tribune. A proposed affordable housing bond could funnel badly needed capital into the creation of homes targeted for the state’s most vulnerable residents, which would ease the extreme housing shortage and stoke the economy at the same time.
