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

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
