Despite decreasing revenues as part of the aftershock of the economic downturn, the New Haven Corps has been able to serve 3,786 clients through our food pantry and provide approximately 34,011 meals in the past year. Additionally, 286 children were helped with diapers through its Diaper Bank; and 7 families were assisted with utility bills. 42 children were supplied with a week of Summer Camp experience. Furthermore, 266 families were supplied with food for Christmas, 515 children were presented with toys and clothing through the Angel Tree; and 9 families were helped via Adopt-a-Family, being provided with packages of toys, clothing, and groceries to give them happier holidays. 1190 residents of local nursing homes/hospitals were visited and given Christmas gifts. This includes the patients at the VA hospital in West HavenTo demonstrate the continued impact that the New Haven Corps has on the families it serves, what follows is a success story:
Indirect Public Support HelpIndirect public support represents revenue received through solicitation campaigns. This includes funding United Way and other federated fundraising organizations, but does not include donor designated contributions.
Earned Revenue HelpEarned revenue represents income generated in direct exchange for a product or service.Earned income includes income from government contracts.
A strong community not only meets its members’ basic needs but also works to create long-term solutions to their problems. Provide people with affordable housing, enough to eat and access to affordable health care and you enable them to envision a better future for themselves.
