West Haven Community House
Meeting Changing N
75 years ago, visionary social worker Pauline Lang and other community volunteers facilitated a series of public meetings to discuss issues facing West Haven community. Soon it became clear that citizens desired a community center that would serve as a hub of positive activities for children. To make this dream a reality, a capital campaign was undertaken, resulting in the purchase of a house and property at 227 Elm Street, which became The West Haven Community House Association. After school clubs, teen dances, Saturday cooking classes, summer camps and nursery school were typical offerings in the 40s, 50s, and 60s.
75 years later, West Haven continues to benefit from the foresight of the civic leaders of yesteryear. Today, the Community House is flourishing and continues to be a beacon of dependability for families, children, teens, and parents alike as well as for people with intellectual disabilities. We are considered to be the cornerstone social service agency of West Haven providing services that promote individual development, self-respect and respect for others, inclusion into the community and positive social change. Today, our programs focus on early learning opportunities, before and after school and summer care, and residential and day programs for adults with intellectual disabilities. What an incredible year 2016 has been beginning with our January kick-off with a gathering of more than 100 friends and supporters. Then in June, we held a free city-wide Community Celebration on the West Haven Green where upwards of 1,000 citizens enjoyed an old-fashioned-style fair that included rides, games, food trucks and live entertainment on the main stage.

Head Start Model
Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in many areas such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development. Unlike other traditional child care programs, Head Start emphasizes the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher. The program helps build relationships with families that support family wellbeing, community engagement and school readiness.
The Head Start program provides support and resources to families who are facing socio-economic challenges achieve their goals for education, employment and housing. This two-generation approach supports stability and long-term success for the families who are most at risk. Depending on each family’s needs, they receive a wide range of individualized services.
It is important for us to recognize our partnerships and supporters throughout our 38 years offering Head Start in West Haven including the City of West Haven, the West Haven Board of Education, the West Haven Public Library, the Family Resource Center, WHEAT, the state Department of Children & Families (DCF), as well as local religious groups, and a host of other supporters.

Enhancing Opportunities for Studen Children and Youth Services
In the summer of 1943, the Community House held its first Summer Camp on the property at 227 Elm Street. Cost per week was 75 cents for members; $1 for nonmembers. The camp opened with 45 children between the ages of 5 and 11.
Camp operated for eight weeks, divided into four two week sessions. The older division had an over-night camping experience once every session. This was truly the highlight of each two week session for the older campers.
By the summer of 1949, the summer day camp was held at Painter’s Park with 125 children participating, while 154 additional children took part in a summer camp program at Cedarcrest.
A “Teen Community Program” began at the Community House funded by a federal grant. Teens were allowed to decide the program expenditures and by the Spring of 1972 there were six Teen groups meeting.
The Community House was host to many clubs and organizations. Musical opportunities and dances were regular offerings through the 50’s and 60’s. In 1965 there was a grand total of 1,021 club and program members that included friendship clubs, arts and crafts, nature and hiking, sewing, etc., plus a teen lounge, game room, gym and monthly dances. By the late 1960’s, the camp was called “Camp To Come To” and was divided into two divisions according to age. Each division began their day with a council ring, where campers found out about special events for the day or the week, had a chance to raise any issues they might have, and also played games. Part of the function of council ring was to help the campers build camp identity, as well as to identify with their specific division.

ent Achievement ... Then & Now
Children and Youth Services (CYS) is a high quality program providing before, after school and summer programs for elementary and intermediate students attending West Haven Schools. The program recognizes the need to avail services to the children of working families in a safe and supportive environment. At the request of the Board of Ed, the Community House developed the CYS Program 30+ years ago. We continue to work cooperatively with the Board of Ed and provide services for 300 children and their families at seven neighborhood schools. This year our staff spent 4 days training and preparing to infuse Literacy and STEM into program activities. Providing students with hands on experiences that allow them to have fun and discover the excitement of science, technology engineering and math. The goal is to overcome barriers to STEM and help children build a more inquisitive and engaged way of thinking and to identify areas where students need extra support and make skill building fun and empowering for students. We believe in the uniqueness of each student and design
our program to meet the needs of the whole child to facilitate the social, emotional, intellectual and physical growth, stressing the importance of individuality, diversity, unity, choice, leadership and autonomy. Keeping our students active and healthy was supplemented this year with Zumba classes provided by Beyond FITness. The afterschool schedule affords students the opportunity to choose most of their own activities and experiences and the ability to participate in in individual and group activities.
The 8 week summer program offers a broad range of fun, recreational and educational experiences. Four days of the week students enjoy visits to Museums, Aquariums, Zoos, Seaports, Nature Centers, Cultural Venues, Pow Wows, State Parks, Waterparks, Trolley Rides, Beaches and more. One day a week, the students are home based and engage in variety arts, science, sports and team building activities. Every week offers a new and exciting experience.
Creating Independence and C Community Connections
In the summer 1954, the Community House launched its first week-long summer camp for intellectually disabled children. In fact, in the 1950s and 1960s, the Community House was the leading organization providing services for disabled children, beginning with a summer camp providing an important and meaningful outdoor summer experience for many, many years. Soon after that, the Community House began its “Friendship Club,” restricted for members age 60 and over who had intellectual disabilities. The club was formed to address the need for an organization that would provide sociability for the more venerable residents of West Haven. Early club projects included making planters, musical programs, quilting, group singing, arts and crafts, picnic outings and playing cards. In the 70’s the T.E.A.M. program, consisting of 50 or so disabled adults ages 18 to 73, met on Tuesday nights. The program, which stood for The Exceptional Adult Mini-community, focused on independent living skills and included day trips to various destinations. In the 80’s, T.E.A.M. clients began working at Branford Trolley Museum’s gift shop and food concession, and discussions about a ‘group home’ concept began.
In January 1984, after much debate and planning, the Community House Board voted to proceed with plans to operate a group home. By the end of that year, the first group home at 228 Elm opened with five clients, including two from Southbury Training School. Two years later with increasing state money available for group homes and supported employment opportunities, the Community House considered program expansion adding a paid work component to the prevocational and vocational training program. In the 90’s the T.E.A.M. vocational program accreditation was extended through September 1994 with the notification letter stating, “Everyone involved in your organization can rightfully be proud of the unique distinction of being accredited. This important achievement is an indication of your dedication and commitment to improve the quality of lives of people with disabilities.”
