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

Not the Visitation You Asked For

Why the Vatican's investigation of Catholic nuns in the U.S. holds important lessons for us all.

Let’s Measure What Matters to Well-Being

Changing the way we measure and manage our progress should be focused on a well-being-bottom-line going beyond the current short-term focus on GDP and quarterly profits. After all, life is more than simply making money. It’s about living a life of purpose and meaning; feeling a sense of flourishing, joy and hope.

Measuring What Matters

Pioneering economist Mark Anielski outlines the pitfalls of relying on gross domestic product (GDP) as a measure of societal wealth. Instead, we need to measure the things that matter most to us to really understand how we're doing.

Open Street Project

Using Temporary Signage to Increase Attendance

Before the most recent Sunday Streets Missoula, organizers tried something new: they decided to put up temporary signs around the city with information about the upcoming event. The idea was simple: the signs would both help participants find their way to certain parts of the Sunday Streets route, and also remind people that Sunday Streets [...]

Tackling health and home for a better future

When LISC launched the Healthy Futures Fund last year, it was a chance to test how best to integrate affordable housing and health care in low-income places that desperately need them both. This month, Health Affairs takes a look at where the fund stands today—ready for growth in 2015, with new projects moving forward to help revitalize distressed communities.

Moving past politics to get at the heart of communities

The best way to overcome political roadblocks to build a healthier city is by finding an agenda everyone can get behind. So said presenters at a summit on health and safety in Milwaukee last week, including Mayor Tom Barrett, police chief Ed Flynn and LISC’s executive director Leo Ries, who unveiled the “Agenda for a Safer Wisconsin.” The plan outlines dozens of ideas for creating a better city, including economic and youth development, criminal justice reform, and programs for people with addictions and ex-offenders.

Big data is big news for community development

There are always lots of great ideas to help neighborhoods grow and thrive. But how can foundations, cities and community groups figure out which ideas are really effective? Until recently, the only way to find out was to fund studies that looked at individual neighborhoods or projects — larger studies cost too much for most non-profits. But LISC has been using the power of big data to analyze the effectiveness of its programs without breaking the bank. In What Counts: Harnessing Data for America's Communities, Susana Vasquez, executive director of LISC Chicago, reveals how to get bigger and better data.
