When you join GNH Community you automatically have a blog on the site. You can use this blog to share your thoughts and opinions, perhaps even something you wrote for another occasion that you would like to share with a broader audience. You may also share articles or other non-date specific information, resources or  job announcements on your blog page. Using tags facilitates finding post by using these keywords in the search box.

Video and Picture Sharing

You can post videos and pictures on GNH Community. Videos are increasingly becoming the medium of choice for nonprofits. You can post promotional videos about your organization, educational videos about your field and public service  announcements. Every Tuesday we feature a video at the top of the GNH Community homepage and share it with our social media network. 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. If you give us a couple of weeks of notice we can try to time the featuring of your video with a particular event or an awareness campaign. The best way to use the pictures function is to create an album. An album can be used to tell a story, to document impact or to show progress. We will gladly feature an album if you give us notice of its creation. 

Groups

You can join groups created by members or create your own; this is a great place to meet people that share your interest and to ask questions. You may join as many groups as you wish. 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). Executive Directors and members with similar responsibilities are urged to join a special forum group created by one of your colleagues just for you:http://gnhcommunity.ning.com/group/executivedirectorforum.

Open Street Project

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

An Affordable Housing Development with Sustainable Features is Coming to Long Beach, California with Help from LISC

Multifamily housing offers an affordable option for low-income families in the coastal city as inventory shortages and high costs start to mirror the competitive market in the nearby city of Los Angeles. A $4.34 million acquisition and predevelopment loan from LISC is allowing the construction of 1401 Long Beach Blvd. to move forward and provide a range of apartments for families earning 30% AMI to 60% AMI.

To Safeguard Homes in California, Promote Affordability Through the Foreclosure Intervention Housing Preservation Program

California’s recently formed Foreclosure Intervention Housing Preservation Program (FIHPP) is poised to fund nonprofit housing groups to buy rental properties in or at risk of foreclosure and quickly convert them to long-term affordable housing. Now, FIHPP is hanging in the legislative balance. LISC’s Tahirih Zigler and Enterprise Community Partners’ Jacqueline Waggoner weigh in on the imperative of safeguarding the program to help spare many Californians from the preventable tragedies of displacement and homelessness.

Jorge Cruz Returns to LISC Greater Newark as Executive Director

LISC has named Jorge Cruz as executive director of LISC Greater Newark, a decades-long community investment program that has delivered more than $169 million to New Jersey neighborhoods, businesses and community organizations to support economic opportunity and growth.
