Review for New Haven Help Alliance Inc, New Haven, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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

Witnessed improvement of lives of young people in New Haven.

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

Increase funding to allow GNHHA to serve a wider population.
