Collaboratory is a series of events that brings together New Haven neighbors — residents, students, entrepreneurs, and activists — to build actionable solutions through community problem-solving. 

Each Collab features one organization (non-profit, student group, government department, or company) to present their mission and three challenges they are facing. Then, participants will break out into small groups to come up with actionable solutions to tackle these challenges. At the end, the small groups will present their solutions back the the organization. 

Collaboratory: Neighborhood Housing Services

Neighborhood Housing Services of New Haven (http://www.nhsofnewhaven.org/) has been working since 1979 to position New Haven’s neighborhoods to succeed by increasing homeownership; making homes beautiful, energy-efficient, and affordable; and helping residents take charge of their neighborhoods.

Members of the Neighborhood Housing Services team hope to work with participants to tackle three challenges (to be announced!).

Dinner will be served and the event will be capped at 50.
