Building Connections Through Local Media

The voices of people starting over after coming home from prison are raised on "Criminal Justice Insider," a new radio show sponsored by The Community Foundation on the New Haven Independent's WNHH radio station, which airs the first and third Fridays of every month.
The show aligns with The Foundation's leadership strategy on incarceration and reentry, and is just one of several ways we are working with local media outlets to inform the community.
Our long-standing support of nonprofit journalism is continuing with new general operating grants from The Community Foundation and our affiliate, the Valley Community Foundation to fund the work of the New Haven Independent and Valley Independent Sentinel.
A new grant was also awarded to Connecticut Health Investigative Team (C-HIT) to support reporting on in-depth stories including disparities and access to health care.
