There a chance that more than 100 17” flat screen monitors may come available to non-profits. Please let me know if you are interested such monitors, and how many, for your non-profit, should they become available. These monitors are used but are of relatively recent vintage and are in working order.

Sitting in Junta, at the GNH Community workshop, imaging what the possibilities of this site could be. The first thing is to get people on board, and then learn how to use it efficiently. I am currently on a few listservs related to non-profits in New Haven and can imagine them working through this site. These include CityWide Youth Coalition, Executive Director breakfast group, the Chamber's Non Profit Resource Council, the I <3 New Haven Non-Profits, etc. Hmmm.

Seen it? The idea is to have spreadsheets like that to make information sharing easier between providers. Basically what we can have is a list of locations/programs and how many clients they can still take - the trick is that the spreadsheet is open (it is just a Google Document) so it can be edited by anyone… Continue
