"An emerging kind of nonbeliever is less excited about insulting organized religion and more excited about borrowing parts of it: coping mechanisms, action plans for life, communities that help you adhere to the life you aspire to live. The Yale Humanist Community is built around this approach." 
Yale Alumni Magazine, July/August 2016

The Yale Humanist Community, Inc. (YHC), a Yale University campus ministry that also serves the Greater New Haven region is seeking a new leader for its member activities and community outreach.  This Executive Director position reports directly to the Board of Directors.

Needs of New Haven: an outreach program that supports groups and individuals throughout the community.  Past activities have included gatherings where New Haven-area community service organizations such as the Community Mental Health Center or La Puerta Community Development can meet with members to discuss their programs and what volunteer support they need.  Our Needs of New Haven program has also organized hat-knitting for the homeless and providing food and heating fuel to families in financial distress, as well as other forms of compassionate service to the community.

Executive Director Search

YHC seeks a leader who is passionate about people; who understands how an eclectic group of atheists, skeptics, agnostics, and even believers can unite around humanism; and who can balance program leadership with administration and fundraising responsibilities. The Executive Director is supported by the Director of Operations, a Board of Directors, and a team of volunteers dedicated to the mutual support of our participants and the good of our community..

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

Community Wise Podcast: Energy Efficiency & Affordable Housing

San Antonio, TX councilmember Roberto Treviño joins Maurice and Imani Darden to discuss energy efficiency and affordable housing sustainability. LISC launched its San Antonio office in 2016, the same year Councilman Treviño launched Under 1 Roof, a no-cost, needs-based program to retrofit the roofs of qualified residents. We are pleased to have a local official with us to share more about the conjoining of community, local politics, energy efficiency and housing stabilization.

The Justice League

We first published this story about the RVA League for Safer Streets and its co-founders, Jawad Abdu and Paul Taylor, in January. Sadly, Jawad Abdu died of a heart attack on July 13, 2019. We are reposting the article to commemorate Abdu's work and commitment to his community, which will be carried forward by his partners Taylor and Robert Morris.  In less than three years, the RVA League for Safer Streets, a basketball-plus-education program for young men from Richmond communities with high crime rates, has had an extraordinary peace-making impact in the lives of participants—and on the city at large. Its founders were informed by experience and insight wrought by decades behind bars, which is why the League is dedicated to keeping people out of prison, and helping those who are returning to become successful members of their communities. The article that follows contains audio quotes from the League's founders about pivotal experiences in their lives in and outside of prison.

For the Love of the Game—and the Neighborhood

For 13 summers running, Hoops in the Hood has offered a safe, healthy and enriching outlet for Chicago children in nearly 20 historically under-invested neighborhoods. With support from LISC and State Farm, the program has had a tranformative impact on its participants, and their communities.
