Greater New Haven has historically had sharp disparities between those living well and those going without. Food, clothing, shelter, and health and hygiene supplies are some of the bare necessities for survival that our neighbors struggle to find.  
Please join The Foundation's Basic Needs Fund Advisory Committee as we look at how meeting basic material needs with dignity is the foundation for a healthy society and improves outcomes for people in education, job-training and other programs working to address social concerns.
