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.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

A Place at the Table

No lines ... no meal tickets ... no clothes piled on tables to pick through. These are just a couple of the "radical hospitality" ideas John and Peter talk about with Edd Conboy of Philadelphia's Broad Street Ministry in these transcribed highlights of their August 8, 2015 conversation.

A Place at the Table (audio)

No lines ... no meal tickets ... no clothes piled on tables to pick through. John and Peter talk with Edd Conboy, Director of Social Services and the Counseling Center at Broad Street Ministry in Philadelphia, about different ways people and communities can shift from a scarcity, helplessness and hopelessness stance to one of abundance, gifts and empowerment in their work with people on the margins.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

A student's view on what neighborhood change can really look like

For Bronx native Malik Brown, a summer internship at LISC became more than an exercise in data entry. A visit to a Brooklyn food pantry sparked an "aha" moment—and a new way of seeing how communities can transform themselves, in spite of overwhelming obstacles.

Anatomy of a deal

A visionary collaboration between a grocery store and a clinic in Brockton, MA, aiming to tackle chronic health problems in a low-income community, marks its grand opening this week. The technical backstory—how complex private and public funding came together to make it all happen—might not take center stage at the celebration. But an article in the Novogradac Journal of Tax Credits details, in plain English, the financial architecture involved in bringing Vincente’s Tropical Grocery to the project and to a neighborhood that has long been a food desert.

Creative financing makes for rural renewal

Getting investors and lenders to take on ventures in low-income rural places can be a tough sell. But stagnant economies in our heartland can’t rebound without innovative support. In an article for ABA Banking Journal, Suzanne Anarde, director of Rural LISC, shows how even modest investment can have major impact. Creative financing helped to adapt a former houseboat builder into a manufacturer of prefab homes in Kentucky, and an old department store was converted to affordable apartments and health clinic in Michigan. These and similar projects across the country reap great returns for investors and communities alike.
