Project Director for the New Haven Healthy Start Program
The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven
Mr. Kenn Harris began his professional career in community organizing and health and human services. He continued his professional career in community development while employed at the Boston Healthy Start Initiative, Boston, MA from 1992-1997. Healthy Start is a federally-funded urban health initiative to reduce infant mortality and eliminate health disparities. During his time at BHSI, Mr. Harris helped to establish a male involvement fatherhood program (“Father-friendly” Fatherhood Program), a companion program to the healthy start initiative.
Mr. Harris is currently employed at The Community Foundation for Greater New Haven as Project Director for the New Haven Healthy Start program in New Haven, CT. He was the original project director for the New Haven Healthy Start program (1997-2003) and returned to The Community Foundation in 2008 after doing focused work on “race” and “racism”. He serves on the Management Team of the Male Involvement Network of New Haven, a male involvement and fatherhood program for non-custodial fathers and low income men, which he helped to establish over 15 years ago. His consulting business keeps him busy providing technical assistance to projects across the country on topics such as board development, coalition development, grant-writing, program development and implementation, and fatherhood program, which he does as time permits. He also provides technical assistance to churches interested in transformational leadership development and the establishment of health initiatives in areas of prostate cancer, cardiovascular disease, HIV/AIDS, MCH and cancer.
