Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE)

The Community Alliance for Research and Engagement (CARE) is based at the Southern Connecticut State University College of Health and Human Services, partnering with the Yale School of Public Health. CARE’s mission is to improve health in New Haven among people most impacted by disparities, including Black and Brown communities and low-income populations, through collaborative research, practice, and engagement. 

We work directly with our community to drive meaningful change. Our approach includes partnering with neighborhood groups, residents, and community and governmental organizations to identify health priorities, access resources, implement activities, and track results. We implement initiatives focused on chronic disease prevention in the community and offer health leadership programs across Connecticut.

We envision thriving communities that foster health and wellbeing for all people in all systems.
