Description Interest
City Atlas is a new project about the future of New Haven. We feature and promote the sustainability goals of New Haven and Yale, and help connect members of the Yale community to the city's new initiatives and civic organizations. We aim to strengthen the ties between social justice, sustainability, and community building.

City Atlas: New Haven is modeled on City Atlas: New York (newyork.thecityatlas.org). City Atlas: New Haven is the beginning of a network of sites in partnership with universities, drawing on talented young people to create a new, locally relevant platform for a public conversation about the future. (A project is beginning in China as well, at beijing.thecityatlas.org).

Liana,

Welcome to GNH Community, glad to have you join us. Members may post information that they think will be of interest to nonprofits, civic organizations, and 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. Politically partisan, religious or business promotion posts are not allowed. Your opportunities to connect with other members greatly increases if you include a photo or logo on your profile include your job title and\or if you "like" or comment on the post of other members. Events are also noticed more often if you include a picture or logo as a part of the posting. Check out the groups created by other members; this is a great place to meet people that share your interest and to ask 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).
Ideas for increasing the impact of your participation:
1. Post your activities and events with a link back to your website as soon as the date is set, by doing this you decrease the chances of conflicting with the events of other area nonprofits.  Your posts are immediately viewable by over 800 members. We send notices of your event to 5000+ people via Facebook, Google+, Linkedin, Twitter and Instagram; search for #GNHCommunity to find these post. Post your events here: http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/events
2. Share your work and your thoughts with people who signed up to get more information about the work of Greater New Haven nonprofits by using our blog page this way. Post a headline and teaser paragraph with a link back to your blog. Once a week we feature the latest post on the above mentioned social media. Why not add your information to the mix?  Post non-date specific information here: http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/profiles/blog/list
3. Videos are increasingly becoming the medium of choice for nonprofits.Once a week we feature a video at the top of the homepage on GNH Community. Your video need not be professionally done to effectively communicate your message. Check out the videos that have already been posted for ideas and inspiration, create a video, post it on You Tube or Vimeo and share it through a link on the video page. Every Tuesday we feature a video and send a notice encouraging our social media network check out the video pick of the week.
Special note to Executive Directors types: Consider joining a special forum group created by one of your colleagues just for you:http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/group/executivedirectorforum

Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

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.

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

Maurice Jones on... (Episode #6)

In this episode Maurice discusses opportunities to narrow the life-expectancy gap that exist in communities all across the country. Engaging with new and existing partners, expanding initiatives designed to address social-determinants of health and the aspiration to expand LISC’s focus on health overall are just a few of the points Maurice speaks to in this interesting and timely discussion.

Kindling Hope in a Chicago Neighborhood

You can feel the change, say residents. Police data show it, too. In just one year, crime and violence have dropped precipitously in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood where LISC has long partnered with local leaders, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. How did it change? A concerted mix of strategic policing and community engagement, says Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for health & safety—the very approach LISC supports in Englewood and dozens of communities across the country.

Home for the Holidays, and for Good

This is the story of Michael Elliot, who was homeless and fighting cancer when his life took a sharp turn for the better. Through a unique partnership with ProMedica Health in Toledo, where he was receiving treatment, Elliot was introduced to a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. There, he worked with a financial coach, who helped him secure a safe, affordable apartment and even begin saving money—all within a few months. Said Elliot, “It’s the greatest thing in the world that I have a place to call home.”
