Nonprofit Board Responsibility

   You may remember when as kids and something went bad (a dish broke, the dog got out, a fuse blew from a key put in an electric socket), your first response to the authorities, aka your parents, was to say "I don't understand how that happened" or "I didn't do it".

The board of the Interfaith Housing Development Corporation of Bucks County (PA) has pretty much taken…

Still Waiting In Selma - For Equity And Equal Justice

Being Better off is Still Not Being Equal; that is what is happening in Selma in 2015. Imagine: "It took over 35 years to dislodge Joseph T. Smitherman, who was mayor of Selma on March 7, 1965, the day known as Bloody Sunday, when lawmen disrupted the first attempted Selma-to-Montgomery march, brutally attacking peaceful demonstrators."

"Some progress has been made in the justice system, though real…

Top Reads, Week of 11/5

Check out our top three reads of the week. They cover the challenges and opportunities facing American communities right now. This week, we’re delving into a report on jobs that fall short of the middle-class salary threshold, Opportunity Zones, and the impact a felony charge has on one’s ability to participate in democracy.

Progress and Possibilities for Housing Every Veteran

Our commitment to helping house homeless and at-risk veterans won’t let up until there are no more ex-military men and women living on the streets. It’s hard work, especially in hot, high-cost markets. In honor of Veteran's Day, we're highlighting the creative solutions and partnerships that build supportive housing communities and make it possible for us reach our collective goal.
