FREE Community Learning Hubs available for families!

Community Learning Hubs are safe spaces for children to go during the school day for supervised distance learning with high-speed internet access, social support, and enrichment, in a small cohort of no more than ten children. Children eligible to attend a Hub must be New Haven residents in 1st through 9th grades, registered for the New Haven Public Schools, and demonstrate high need. Space is extremely limited and families with the greatest need will receive priority. There is no cost to families.

There is a common application at nhvlearninghubs.net for all Hubs participating in the New Haven Learning Hubs Collective, which is comprised of the City of New Haven Youth & Recreation Department, non-profit organizations, the New Haven Free Public Library, faith groups, families, educators, and community members. While we are now accepting applications for five initial Hubs, we anticipate at least ten more Hubs, operated by different community partners, to open later this Fall.

To apply for a space at one of the five Hubs operated by the City of New Haven Youth & Recreation Department, please complete the application between **September 28 and 30**. If you prefer a hard copy application, please visit the City of New Haven Youth and Recreation Department at 720 Edgewood Avenue.

Hubs locations are:
-Barnard Nature Center
-Trowbridge Square
-Salperto Park
-Coogan Pavillion
-Edgerton Park

Families will be prioritized by need, with a lottery among the highest-needs families if necessary. Efforts are also underway to open Hubs in Dixwell, Dwight, Fair Haven, Fair Haven Heights, the Hill, Newhallville, and West Rock. Please complete this survey to help us understand the need to this service: https://forms.gle/6h7SFJk2E9HUmbPB7.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.

Fay Darmawi: In Her Own Words

Fay Darmawi is a social practice artist who focuses on cities, storytelling, and media. She is the Founder and Executive Director of the SF Urban Film Fest, a film festival focused on civic engagement inspired by great storytelling. I spoke with her in February 2020 and again in May and July 2020.

In a Time of Crisis, Business Development Organizations Step Up

Small business owners cherish their independence, but they can also use outside advice and technical assistance to be successful—or simply to survive a crisis like the pandemic. And that's where business development organizations (BDOs) come in. LISC BDO partners link their on-the-ground networks and insight with LISC’s national scale, funding and expertise to support small businesses, in the midst of COVID, and for the future.
