Fair Haven is a Diverse Community with a Rich History and a Beautiful Waterfront
Welcome (Bienvenido, Benvenuto, Powitanie, Bonjour! Willkomme,歡迎, ברוךהבא أهلا وسهلا, Bonvenon) to Chatham Square online.
We are an all-volunteer group of residents, nonprofits, and business people creating and sustaining community in Fair Haven. We are a diverse and inclusive community. Everyone is welcome.
We organize monthly community gatherings--on alternating months, either a Community Dining Out Night at a local restaurant or a Community Soup Night at a resident's home or a nonprofit. These events aim to build community in our neighborhood, support local businesses, and raise awareness about local nonprofits. In the process of building community, we learn about and address local concerns. CSNA also offers neighborhood tours focusing on: art, culture, environmental justice, history, local food and more. Tours are arranged upon request.
We raises funds locally to:

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
