North Haven Village is one of the villages that form the HomeHaven community. Although small, it is made up of an eclectic mix of working and retired members who enjoy one another’s company. We meet bi-monthly for lunch at a near-by restaurant or in each other’s homes, and we phone regularly to check in with our frail members. We schedule occasional gatherings on topics of interest to the membership, such as recent sessions about iPhone and computer use. And our speakers have ranged from the North Haven Fire Chief to a Professor Emeritus of Sociology from Yale.
Members of North Haven Village are proud of their town. In his will of 1714, the Reverend James Pierpont (1659–1714) of New Haven gave 8 acres to his neighbors in the Northeast Parish, as North Haven was called, "provided those neighbors will set their meeting house there and make their training and burying there." About half of the original Pierpont gift remains today as the North Haven Green. Ezra Stiles enumerated about forty families living in North Haven in the early part of the eighteenth century. All of these people were multipurpose farmers, producing what they needed for themselves and their families. North Haven is less than 10 miles from Yale University and about 75 miles from New York City.
Village events are organized by volunteer leaders. Members enjoy the additional social and cultural events provided by the HomeHaven office, as well as the services designed to help members enjoy their homes as they age.
