Culture and Community

The Community Outreach Program works to connect non-profits, businesses and community members in order to provide better education and support for issues not covered under our current programs.  Community outreach activities include health workshops, health screenings and family literacy events. We also put on annual events to celebrate Latino culture in the Greater New Haven area.
