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.

Honoring vets with some home improvement

The Chesapeake Veterans House in Southeast Washington, D.C. puts a roof over the heads of some 60 formerly homeless vets. But the facility, which opened in 1999, needs some TLC of its own. Thanks to grants from Citi Community Development (through LISC/NEF's Bring Them HOMES veterans housing initiative) and Home Depot, the ex-servicemen who live there will soon have a new roof—as well as renovated bathrooms and improved security.

Charter school funders should pay attention to schools' report cards

Funding charter school facilities can be a perfectly sound investment in quality education for low-income communities--if lenders and investors scrutinize a school’s track record, says a report by LISC and the National Association of Charter School Authorizers.
