Chatham Square Association

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.

Who We Are & What We Do

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  raise funds to: 

  • support neighborhood activities that build or sustain community,
  • improve the image of the neighborhood and/or to
  • facilitate social gatherings.

To learn more about community activities join this website. If you live in the area come to an event and get to know your neighbors.

Contributions to CSNA are welcome but not required. Donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. If you would like to make a donation, please see the instructions below.

What We Believe...

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members ~ Coretta Scott King

_ . _

One of the marvelous things about community is that it enable us to welcome and help people in a way that we couldn't as individuals. When we pool our strengths and share the work and responsibility we can welcome many people ~ Jean Vanier 

_ . _

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
