Project Access-New Haven (PA-NH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2009 by a group of dedicated physicians who sought to address health concerns and inequities identified within the New Haven community. PA-NH, which is based on a program model that has been implemented in more than 50 communities across the U.S., increases access to specialty care and ancillary services for low-income, uninsured individuals in the Greater New Haven area by coordinating the provision of donated medical care and services and ensuring the delivery of comprehensive care to this population. PA-NH provides care through a network of over 300 volunteer physicians who donate their time and Yale-New Haven Hospital (YNHH) and the Hospital of Saint Raphael (HSR), which donate inpatient and outpatient medical services. At the core of the program are Patient Navigators who help patients obtain needed services and navigate a complex, confusing, and often intimidating healthcare system. By providing access to comprehensive care in a timely manner, PA-NH also reduces health disparities and fosters cost savings for the local healthcare system. For more information about PA-NH, please contact 203-773-0838 or visit our website at www.pa-nh.org.

Lauren,

Welcome to GNH Community, glad to have you join. You are now able to post information that you think will be of interest to other nonprofits, civic organizations, the people they serve or the general public. You may post calendared events on the events page, non-date specific information on the blog, pictures or video.

 

Check out the groups created by other members; this is a great place to meet people that share your interest and 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 start a group you can make it open to anyone or limit membership.

 

If you have questions or suggestions as to how we can make GNH Community more useful for you please let me know.

Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

Open Streets Project Revamped

The Open Streets Project has undergone some changes over the last year. We bid a sad farewell to project co-founder, the Alliance for Biking & Walking, who are moving on to other things, and we happily welcomed a new partner, international Open Streets leader 8 80 Cities. We are excited for all the possibilities and energy this partnership will bring.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

#CraftingSomethingGreat in Duluth

In an op-ed for the Duluth News Tribune, Pam Kramer enumerates the plans, investments, collaborations and creative sparks that have turned an area of blight and brownfield into the Lincoln Park Craft District. The humming, entrepreneurial neighborhood has become a model for how to leverage local craft manufacturing to fuel community revitalization, says Duluth LISC’s executive director.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
