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

Conscious Simplicity

Today's world requires far more than crude or cosmetic changes in our manner of living. Simplicity is not an alternative lifestyle for a marginal few, but rather a creative choice for the mainstream majority to change our overall levels and patterns of living and consuming.

It's not hard to bring a little more equality into each others' lives.

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 [...]

Bridging the skills gap is key to employment

Many of the millions of Americans who are still out of work also lack the basic reading, writing and math skills needed to find a job. To bridge that gap, LISC is bringing new training programs to its Financial Opportunity Centers (FOC) across the country. A story from Issue Media Group explains how Tawnee McCluskey of Chicago got help to become a welding supervisor so she can now support her family.

New housing and services lift veterans in the Bronx

A new supportive housing project in the Bronx is helping advance national efforts to end homelessness among veterans. Bridge Gardens, opened last week, is providing high-quality apartments and social services to chronically homeless, mentally ill veterans who are trying to reclaim their independence. It is the latest project supported by LISC's national Bring them HOMES initiative—a collaboration with National Equity Fund that has supported, 2,500 apartments for veterans across the country. It came to life thanks to the commitment of The Bridge, which developed the project, and a mix of public and private funding, including a critical grant from Citi Community Development.

Improving economy leaves too many behind

The stock market is up. Unemployment is below 6 percent. Businesses are growing. But it's clear that not everyone is enjoying the economic recovery, says LISC's Kevin Jordan. Manufacturing jobs have not returned in force since the recession ended, and that has cut off a clear path to the middle class, with no easy alternative in sight. Low-income communities are hit particularly hard by the shift, and it will take a combination of smart economic development and an honest assessment of the national skills gap to address it.
