Fair Haven Community Health Center
In 2014, Capital for Change (then as Greater New Haven Community Loan Fund) worked with a new local CDFI Bank, START Bank, to formulate a strategy to assist the Health Center, which was in the midst of a leadership transition. Capital for Change also provided $350,000 to help improve their financial position and access to free consulting through a CDFI Fund Capacity Building Initiative from Capital Link, the pre-eminent Federally Qualified Health Center consultant in the country, which performed an in-depth analysis of Fair Haven’s programmatic and financial performance. Fair Haven Community Health Care is now thriving and recently increased medical and behavioral health services to include dental services. The facility serves more than 15,000 individual clients on an annual basis with high-quality healthcare services.
