We are excited to think outside of the box and work with Elm Shakespeare  and other community partners throughout New Haven to use theatrical storytelling and even the words of Shakespeare to raise issues important to all of us and broaden our city-wide perspectives so that New Haven can be more unified.We are a non-profit, by youth/for-youth, peer-to-peer training organization established in 1990 to prevent youth violence. For over 27 years, awe have specialized in training, prevention, and empowerment. One of our core beliefs is that youth communicate and learn best from their peers of similar age, racial and social status groups. Therefore, SNDH is committed to a Train-the-Youth-Trainer™ concept. Our aim is to prepare youth for a School-to-College-to-Career positive lifestyle transition. SNDH is known for its innovative, creative style. Survivin' N Da  Hood (SNDH) uses the reality of built-in consequences to teach youth to think before they do something that cannot be changed or erased. SNDH provides behavior modification training in critical thinking skills and social skills for adults and youth. Our training offers answers to life's tough situations; shows how to improve deficient, negative behaviors; and provides more options for difficult decision-making.Founded in 1995, Elm Shakespeare Company has given the gift of Free Shakespeare to over half a million people in Edgerton Park. We strive to ignite a creative spark, bringing people together through Shakespeare to share their humanity and build community. We work to strengthen the already vibrant artistic and educational landscape of greater New Haven, through the highest quality professional performances coupled with rigorous and joyous education programs that enrich the diverse New Haven community. Our educational programs now serve 500 students a year and  educational partners include Housing Authority of New Haven, Mauro Sheridan Interdisciplinary Middle  School, Common Ground High School, Whitney Center and LEAP. We value inclusivity, artistic excellence and the power of these plays in our lives.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.

Fay Darmawi: In Her Own Words

Fay Darmawi is a social practice artist who focuses on cities, storytelling, and media. She is the Founder and Executive Director of the SF Urban Film Fest, a film festival focused on civic engagement inspired by great storytelling. I spoke with her in February 2020 and again in May and July 2020.

In a Time of Crisis, Business Development Organizations Step Up

Small business owners cherish their independence, but they can also use outside advice and technical assistance to be successful—or simply to survive a crisis like the pandemic. And that's where business development organizations (BDOs) come in. LISC BDO partners link their on-the-ground networks and insight with LISC’s national scale, funding and expertise to support small businesses, in the midst of COVID, and for the future.
