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!

Tackling “the Worst Housing Crisis Since the Great Depression” with Local Strategies and Big Picture Innovation: Q+A with Denise Scott

In a wide-ranging Q+A with Philanthropy News Digest, LISC President Denise Scott describes how the organization has pivoted and refined its strategies to support communities in the face of market shifts, climate disasters, a pandemic and countless systemic barriers to equity. What we need, says Scott, is “creative financing guided by collaboration with local people who are working toward lasting solutions—if we are going to really advance equity in this challenging time.”

In DC, a Bridge Designed to Soothe Troubled Waters

A deeply reported article in the New York Times delves into the story of creating the 11th Street Bridge Park linking Anacostia with adjacent neighborhoods. The piece features LISC and our DC team’s integral and longtime involvement in a community-centered project that has aimed, from its inception, to nurture connection, growth and vitality without displacing Black residents in the process.
