Emma,

Welcome to GNH Community. Members may post information that they think will be of interest to nonprofits or the people served by nonprofits. For example, you may post calendared events on the events page; non-date specific information on the blog; pictures, video or discussions in the forum. For profit members may post educational information but they may not advertise; you may list services services offered on your profile.

 

Check out the groups created by other members; this is a great place to ask specific questions. You may request to join as many groups as you wish or start a new group. The creator of a group sets the parameters for membership. If you have a question about a group, please write to the owner (the person who initiated the group). If you have questions or suggestions as to how we can make GNH Community more helpful, please let me know.

GNH Community is a free service to nonprofits funded by the Community Foundation for Greater New Haven.

Top 21 Reasons to Live in Branch

From magnificent scenery, low taxes and crime rate, and excellent schools to fresh fish, eligible bachelors, and The Singing Kitchen, Priscilla Corcoran Mooney and her neighbors in tiny Branch, Newfoundland, charted their assets and spread the word about the power even a small community can discover.

The Gift of Fallibility

Transcribed highlights from John and Peter's wide-ranging conversation on "The Gift of Fallibility" touch on competition in our society, perfectionism and the wish for predictability and control, the unintended consequences of technology, and many other concerns in shifting toward a community way of thinking and acting.

A Buffalo Housing Complex That’s Historic in More Ways Than One

Evergreen Lofts is the first affordable housing of its kind in Buffalo: a 19th-century trunk factory converted into safe, attractive apartments for formerly homeless people with HIV/AIDS and low-income LGBTQ residents. Nearly $10 million in equity from NEF, and federal and state historic tax credits, made the project possible.

A Small Business with Expansive Vision

After acing a LISC Boston entrepreneurship program two years ago, Dr. Lesa Dennis-Mahamed opened a business she'd dreamed about–and that her neighborhood needed. Gallery Eye Care, already a beloved community institution, has brought optometry, low-cost eyeglasses and an art exhibition space to low-income Roxbury.

Neighbors turn a vacant lot, once a drug hotspot, into community green space

Sometimes, it takes a simple, homegrown solution to tackle a complex problem. For years, a vacant lot surrounded by abandoned houses in Philly’s historically crime-plagued Kensington neighborhood attracted a thriving drug trade. But in a matter of months, neighbors and community activists banded together, armed with ideas from a LISC SmartGrowth training, and transformed the crime hotspot into a community greenspace.
