A Diverse Fair Haven Community with Historic Homes and a Beautiful Waterfront
Welcome (Bienvenido, Benvenuto, Powitanie, Bonjour! Willkomme,歡迎, ברוךהבא أهلا وسهلا, Bonvenon) to Chatham Square online.
CSNA is an all-volunteer group of residents and business people creating and sustaining community and pride in Fair Haven. Made up of residents of all ages, races, and ethnicities CSNA supports activities for children and families, organizes social gatherings, supports local businesses and addresses community concerns.
For 11 years, we have planned and coordinated our community building events at a retreat in January. The list of events linked here represents the 2019 plan. Residents in collaboration with nonprofits, businesses and our local library created it. All events are subject to change. Please check the events calendar on this site for the updates and additional information.
You can join CSNA by becoming a member on this website. Attending meetings and events is the best way to get to know us; we recommend a Soup Night or a Dining Out Night as a starter event. Contributions to CSNA are welcome but not required. If you have questions, you can reach us at ChathamSquareNeighborhood at gmail.com or at (203) 936-9459.
Your support and the contributions of the businesses and nonprofits listed in the column on the right makes this website and our community activities possible. Please do not forget to let contributors know that we appreciate their support.
Your tax deductible donation can be made via the United Way of Greater New Haven. In the memo line write: CSNA to make sure they know that your donation is designated to our neighborhood. Thank you for your support.

Every time we decrease children's opportunity for free play by increasing time at school or some other adult-directed activities, we reduce further their opportunities to control their own lives, to learn that they ar not simply victims of circumstance and powerful others ~ Peter Gray
