The Greater New Haven Help Alliance is a non-profit organization with a marked difference.... With hardly any publicity or funding, it is already actively serving the Greater New Haven area and beyond in the vital areas that directly impact the core needs of the recipients... Specifically, the mentoring programs have helped develop kids, complementing their basic education and preparing them for the "real world".....

I have had the privilege of serving on the board since its inception. GNHHA serves an underserved group of young adults in the New Haven community, namely young adolescents. The focus is channeling their skills, talents and energies in a positive direction before they fall under the influence of school dropouts, gangs and drugs. Although the opening of a youth center has been stalled due to a zoning appeal, the organization is optimistic and continues to work to improve the prospects of New Haven's young people. In addition, our executive director has worked in Africa and Haiti to help provide basic services such as clean water and safe shelter.

While the Greater New Haven Help Alliance has had impact on poverty issues around the world, it has particularly proven to be valuable asset to the city of New Haven in the area of Youth Services. They run a boys mentoring program, a girls mentoring program and a Summer work/leadership program.

I have personally seen the growth in young people who entered the programs as students and evolved into exceptional leaders. One formerly "stand-offish" young lady particularly comes to mind. When she first arrived at the Summer Youth program it wasn't clear that she really wanted to be there. Now in college, it brings me real joy to see her effectively and enthusiastically lead today's participants. The Help Alliance gave her a place to grow and develop skills that will help her throughout her life and career.

The Great!

I most of all look forward to the completion of the ProTeen Center. The opening of a this high-tech center will greatly enhance the organization's capacity to reach the youth of the city of New Haven, CT. and to build a replicable model that will work anywhere!
