The Lyceum and vibrant communities

Scholars, government officials and business and community leaders have brought energy and creativity to The Lyceum for more than a century. Purchased by the Melville Charitable Trust in 2003 and renovated with state-of-the-art features, it now provides meeting space to the community and to policy makers concerned with safe, affordable housing and strong communities throughout Connecticut.

Role of the Partnership for Strong Communities

The Partnership for Strong Communities operates The Lyceum on behalf of the Melville Charitable Trust. The Partnership for Strong Communities engages civic and political support to solve homelessness, create affordable housing and develop strong, vibrant communities. The Partnership promotes knowledge, forges networks, applies innovation and inspires action to establish communities where anyone would want to live and work.
