We know that to remain a sustainable organization, we must continually evaluate what we do, who we serve, our successes and those times when we fall short.
 
In the ever challenging financial climate, we have been working diligently to find ways to enhance our programs while keeping costs low and communication high. For this reason, we have cut our mailling distribution of our Annual Report to a minimum and invite you to view it online here.

Conduct Science/Engineering Activity
A team of UNH students spent their spring break giving back to the community. They volunteered at the Community House assisting teachers in our after-school program with fun activities that develop a basic understanding of science concepts and engineering design while helping to improve social skills and general problem-solving strategies.

First came 'Cat in the Hat', then West Haven Mayor Nancy Rossi stopped by to read to the children as they sat quietly and giggled occasionally at the tongue twisting, rhyming rendition of ‘Hop on Pop’ and ‘I Can Read with My Eyes Shut’. Read more here.
