CAANH’s 40th Anniversary Gala, held on June 13th, 2019, was a great success! We thank our sponsors in support of the significant milestone of 40 years of honoring our past, celebrating our present and future success. We appreciate the past and present board members, community partners, staff and other stakeholders commitment to commemorate 40 years as a Community Action Agency. CAANH’s 40th Anniversary theme was “Changing the World One Person, One Family, One Block at a Time.” We are especially grateful to Gateway Community College President Paul Broadie and Southern Connecticut State University President Joseph Bertolino for their partnership. We are thrilled to report that we’ve exceeded all of our goals such as fundraising, ticket sales, attendance, as well as surpassed the number of sponsors anticipated. All proceeds will assist CAANH with helping to move the organization forward by supporting its 20,000 low income and working families. In addition to this, proceeds will assist with carrying out CAANH’s mission which is to “offer pathways to prosperity to those in poverty in the Greater New Haven area through: SERVICE, COLLABORATION, ADVOCACY & KNOWLEDGE GENERATION .
