Your support to the West Haven Community House helps to make a difference in the lives of thousands of children, families and adults we serve. The service offered by our diverse programs promotes individual development, self-respect and respect for others, inclusion into the community and positive social change.
We provide comprehensive pre-school school readiness services to more than 144 children from low income families in West Haven, providing them with the educational foundation they need to have successful experiences in school.
We assist more than 300 working families in West Haven by providing before and after school programs for elementary school-aged children at six public schools.
We operate state licensed residential homes for adults with intellectual disabilities, maximizing independence and dignity through support and choice. Adults live with their peers, either in group homes with 24-hour support, or in supervised apartments with more limited support.
Individualized assistance ranges from help with hygiene, nutrition and other tasks of daily living to assistance with budgeting and social interaction. Residents are encouraged to set individual goals and engage in recreational and social activities of interest to them. All of our residents work or attend a day service program that provides community activities or supported employment.
