    Welcome to the Community!

    The Community Services Administration (CSA) is firmly committed to addressing the health and well being of all New Haven residents.  Encompassing the Youth Services Department, Elderly Services Department, the Health Department and the State-Administered General Assistance (SAGA Support), CSA is the health and social service arm of City Hall, dedicated to creating opportunities for all residents to thrive in our vibrant city!

    Since its inception, CSA has worked collaboratively with community partners and city agencies to create (a) the Street Outreach Worker Program addressing youth engagement and violence prevention; (b) afterschool programming through the “Open Schools” concept; (c) the Elm City Resident Card to promote community and civic engagement;(d) the Prison Re-entry Program and (e) Health Matters! New Haven. 

    As part of the nationally-acclaimed “School Change Initiative” in New Haven, CSA oversees Boost!, a novel partnership between the City, United Way of Greater New Haven and the New Haven Public Schools to give students and their families the tools they need to achieve academic success.  In addition, CSA devotes resources to address homelessness, teen pregnancy prevention, and early childhood development. 

    New Haven is truly a city diverse in its demography and neighborhoods; yet, is unified as an energetic and engaged community.  Come visit City Hall to learn more about what our community has to offer and how you can play a greater role in keeping New Haven a strong, safe and healthy model city!
