This fall, there is a lot to see as Chapel Haven’s New Haven campus expansion has broken ground! Chapel Haven is underway with a multi-year campus expansion, with the ultimate goal of providing lifelong services to adults with social and developmental disabilities. Phase One of the project consists of construction of three new buildings, including a 32,500 SF building to house the REACH program, a new, state-of-the-art facility dedicated to aging services, allowing senior members of the community to continue living among friends and with independence, and a new welcome center. Read more about our expansion here

An early bird discount is available to families who apply to the REACH program before the winter holidays. Families who start the application process now and schedule a week visit before the end of 2017 can achieve a savings on the assessment that is a required part of the application process. Chapel Haven’s six-day visit gives applicants a chance to experience the program. Questions? Contact Christy Chandler in the Admissions Office at (203) 397-1714, x185, or cchandler@chapelhaven.org

Facebook Pledges $150 Million to Bay’s Future Fund and Affordable Housing

Thanks to a generous—and momentous—commitment of $150 million from Facebook, the innovative Bay’s Future Fund has nearly reached its $500 million goal in less than one year since its launch. Now, LISC will help put these dollars to work promoting affordable housing development in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The “Ripple Effect” of Investing in Rural America

We need to look at the impact of investing in rural community development on its own terms, argues Suzanne Anarde, outgoing vice president and director of Rural LISC in an essay for Shelterforce. Projects may not touch the numbers of people or generate the returns of urban investments, but their effects are every bit as important, and ripple far and wide through the small, intricately connected networks of rural life.
