Rating: 5 stars  

I support the efforts of the New Haven Family Alliance. Through its clothing drives, feeding and housing the homeless and other community based programs the organization is touching the lives of many people within the New Haven Community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many ways including the Angle Food Distribution program, Housing the homeless etc.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

eliminate the ongoing need to raise funds and focus on program execution.

The New Haven Help Alliance is an outstanding organization that is working hard to make a positive difference in the lives of young people within the New Haven area.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

many areas. Through events such as Debate, Pinewood Derby Races and Rap Sessions I have seen the growth in the lives of many young people I work with through the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

seek additional funding to open the youth center currently under contruction in New Haven CT.

I have been with the Greater New Haven Help Alliance for many years and just became a lead worker in the Youth Initiative Program. I really enjoy the environment that it gives. They send a positive message to the youth that are in the program. They also allow a safe place for youth to be during the summer instead of being out in the streets getting into trouble. As a Lead worker, I have gotten a lot of essential experience. I learned how to better lead my peers and how to hold workshops that help keep the youth on the right path.

The Greater New Haven Help Alliance is a great place for youth to go and be enriched with not only work experience, but a christian experience. During the summer, we hold workshops that are fun and have a special meaning behind it. We always compare what was done in the workshop to certain events that happen in the bible. It gives the youth more undertanding to the teachings of the staff.

Overall, it is a great place for youth to learn and grow in many ways. it is a safe environment for fellowship and gives practical experience in the work place.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The Youth Initiative Program for about 5 years before I became a Lead Worker.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

help volunteer more and try to get more people to help and support the Greater New Haven Help Alliance.

The Greater New Haven Help Alliance participated in a program known as Abraham’s Tent. This is a program where The Greater New Haven Help Alliance housed 12 homeless men for a week that could have otherwise been on the streets of New Haven. It was a joy to provide shelter, meals and activities for them. I had the opportunity to meet and know personally a great group of men. One gentleman was able to secure a lease on an apartment and was hired for a job; another was able to reunite with his family. It was an honor and privilege to serve these men.
