Understanding Greater New Haven

Building a stronger community starts with knowledge. The more that we know about our region, the better we are able to engage with each other in meaningful dialogues about how Greater New Haven is doing and what needs to be done.

The community knowledge resources here offer a portrait of our region through the framework of eight interconnected issue areas that are critical to the prosperity and health of our region’s people, economy, and civic life. 

An introduction to our region's demographic changes and snapshots of each issue are taken from The Community Foundation's report Calibrating the Community: Data to Strengthen Greater New Haven and the DataHaven publication, The Greater New Haven Community Index 2013: Benchmarking the People Economic Opportunity, Health Needs, and Civic Life of Our Region.

You can also dive deeper by reading the issue briefs in each area. Discover the strengths the region and its pressing needs. Learn about who is working on the issues, and what The Community Foundation isdoing to create positive and sustainable change. Pick your passion and join with us to build a stronger community.
