In the aftermath of the arrest of four East Haven Police officers, the clergy of East Haven held a press conference calling for peace in town, pledging support to provide safe space for discussion and healing to take place. Two meetings were held, in which diverse persons from the community met one-on-one and in small groups to talk about experiences of life in East Haven. Not a person left without a smile and a feeling of community.
However, after that time there seemed to be few opportunities for interaction. Karen Gronback Johnson, pastor of Old Stone Church, and Fr. Tom Sievel, priest at St. Vincent de Paul Church, thought that perhaps if the churches could work together on some simple projects to help the community, it just might bring folks together.
When a plane crash in town in 2013 killed four people, East Haven United (EHU) became the central point for people to send donations. EHU collected about $50,000 from all over the country, which was sent on to help rebuild the lives of the victims’ families. Later that year, EHU went on to collect and donate supplies for 83 backpacks. In 2014, supplies to fill 101 backpacks were collected and distributed to EHPS students.
Each year, East Haven United collects backpacks and fills them with school supplies. In 2015, over 100 backpacks were supplied and distributed to students, through the East Haven Public Schools' Family Resource Center.
Members of EHU work each year with East Haven Adult Education, volunteering to tutor English as a Second Language students, to help them practice their new skills.
EHU also works with Family Table Ministries on a monthly basis to provide good quality food for families at a reasonable price.
A community garden for East Haven is in the future.
Our mission is to unite the residents of East Haven through benevolence, service and compassion; we promote communication and cooperation to empower all residents of East Haven to build a cohesive community.
