The Community House Turns 75!
It's an exciting year at the West Haven Community House where we recently kicked off our year-long 75th anniversary celebration. Our auditorium was filled with around 100 friends and supporters including city and state officials, past and present board members, staff and clients as well as many generous donors.
Current Board President Stacie Phan opened the event with remarks that reviewed the agency’s long history and its changing program focus noting the structural updates, building additions and property acquisitions that comprise the agency today. While the Community House’s programs are diverse, we remain unified by the values we consistently promote: individual development; self-respect and respect for others; positive group relationships; inclusion into the community, and, positive social change.
Our first anniversary event will be a community-wide celebration on Saturday, June 18th on the West Haven Green. There will be rides, games, food trucks, vintage cars, entertainment and much more and the event is free. Save the date and check back for more details in the coming months.
