With support from the Connecticut Community Foundation , NHSW was able to subscribe to Bloomerang, a cloud-based Client Relationship Management (CRM) and marketing solutions system. The system assists NHSW in our development and marketing "behind the scenes" efforts.

How does this impact you? Simple. A new provider means, our emails will come from a new sender: Bloomerang. Your mailbox might mark this new "sender" as spam. We don't want to end up in your spam folder.

In an effort to remain connected with you and prevent Bloomerang emails from entering your spam folder, please add no-reply@bloomerang-mail.co to your email’s contact list or whitelist.

We don't want you to miss out on homebuyer classes information, newsletters, home maintenance tips, mortgage rates and more!

Since 2014, NHSW has conducted the Resident Leadership Training (RLT) program. The RLT program equips residents with:
  • concrete leadership skills.
  • increases residents sense of being change agents and ambassadors of their communities.
  • opportunities for residents to solve local neighborhood problems and influence change.

We see the impact our RLT program has made in our communities, daily, and there is no better example than RLT particip ants seeking political office.

"I feel that the RLT helped me connect with people..it helped me understand how to get active in the community. Prior to RLT, I was unaware of the many different neighborhoods in Waterbury and the many different activities..." Elizabeth Bullard, Board of Alderman nominee.

Danielle Albert, Board of Education nominee; Elizabeth Bullard, Board of Alderman nominee; Erika Cooper, Board of Alderman nominee; and Joseph Luchene, Board of Alderman nominee - each one is a past graduate of the RLT program and currently seeking political offices in Waterbury.

" Being part of programs like RLT are great opportunities to learn about the issues facing our families - and, how to start creating solutions to fix them. " Danielle Albert, Board of Education nominee.

If you are interested in becoming more active in your community and joining the 2018 RLT cohort, contact Erika Cooper, 203.753.1896 x18.
