"I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits" campaign @ Tent City

Event Details

 

WHAT

The International Festival will provide a tent on the New Haven Green that will contain 2' x 2' displays created by New Haven area nonprofits showcasing their work. This "Tent City" emulates the “I Love Greater New Haven Nonprofits” Holiday Storefront, which took place at the Grove during the 2010 Holidays. In the tent, visitors will learn about the great diversity of impact by nonprofits, share how nonprofits have impacted their lives, and also connect to giving and volunteering opportunities via a laptop connected to GNH Community website.

 

WHY

1. To increase public awareness of the many nonprofit organizations in Greater New Haven.
2. To increase awareness and appreciation of the many ways in which nonprofits contribute to the well-being of the community. Most people are aware that nonprofits provide a lot of intangibles: enhancing the quality of life for its citizens through arts, cultural and educational institutions. They are also aware that nonprofits care for those in need -- through hospitals and human services organizations. However, far fewer people consider the many ways in which nonprofits contribute to the economic vitality of the communities in which they have a presence: as employers, and purchasers of services, whose employees purchase homes, cars, food, clothing, etc.

3.  To provide an opportunity for community members to access the services provided by area nonprofit organizations, through area websites that access services, volunteer opportunities, employment and philanthropy.

Who Is Putting This Together?

The Tent is a collaboration between The I love Greater New Haven Nonprofits Campaign, Greater New Haven Chamber of Commerce, and you.

If you would like to participate please take the following steps:

  1. Create a 2 foot by 2 foot display about your organization to be hung in the tent.  OR Use the sign created for you during the holiday store front.  Sign Up Form Link
  2. Volunteer for a shift at the tent – educating people about the impact of nonprofits to our community (talking points will be provided). Volunteer here: http://ilovegnhnp.i-volunteeronline.com/tentcity

 

 

NOTE:  Space for displays is limited, so preference will be given for organizations who also sign up to volunteer at the Tent.   Please forward this link to your staff/ volunteers / board members etc. to volunteer for a shift.  It is requested that if you are displaying a sign you provide at least one volunteer.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

Home for the Holidays, and for Good

This is the story of Michael Elliot, who was homeless and fighting cancer when his life took a sharp turn for the better. Through a unique partnership with ProMedica Health in Toledo, where he was receiving treatment, Elliot was introduced to a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. There, he worked with a financial coach, who helped him secure a safe, affordable apartment and even begin saving money—all within a few months. Said Elliot, “It’s the greatest thing in the world that I have a place to call home.”

Kindling Hope in a Chicago Neighborhood

You can feel the change, say residents. Police data show it, too. In just one year, crime and violence have dropped precipitously in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood where LISC has long partnered with local leaders, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. How did it change? A concerted mix of strategic policing and community engagement, says Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for health & safety—the very approach LISC supports in Englewood and dozens of communities across the country.

LISC Pledges New Commitment to Health

LISC has invested deeply in the health and wellbeing of people in the places where we work for 40 years. But we’re upping the ante. President and CEO Maurice Jones calls partners to join us in upending health disparities through tailored investments in communities, and designing a plan to assess the health outcomes of our broad work in economic development, housing, safety and financial stability.
