Hi Lee,
Thanks for the welcome! Things are a little quiet on Southern's campus over the summer, but I will post news items and events as they come up. I'm looking forward to being a part of this online community.

Thanks Lee, this site looks like a great resource. I'm starting a website here in New Haven;

is a social website for building local gift economies. On your profile, you post everything you need and everything you have to give away; such as an hour of volunteer time or a winter jacket. Users give to each other, rewarding the generosity of others. Its a beautifully simple system that reduces waste and meets a neighborhood's needs. GiftFlow also works to help non-profits and community organizations. They can start profiles as well, asking for the donations and volunteers they need.

I thought you might be interested in what we are doing. So far our team is made up of five students. We are working hard to get a functional version of the site up and running soon, hopefully by July. Right now you can play around with what we have online, but it doesn't quite work yet.

Any advice, especially about starting a website in New Haven, would be greatly appreciated. We are looking for help and advice with the development of the site, the legal work of applying for non-profit status and the business management involved in starting our organization. I'd be happy to answer any questions about our project and will definitely keep you updated.

Lee, thanks for the warm welcome to ning. In a couple of months I'm going to be launching a new website for the Parent Child Resource Center and including a blog and I will be sure to post links. In the meantime, I will also be sure to post information on upcoming events as well as some info in National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day, which is May 6, 2010.

“Lifting As We Climb”: In South Minneapolis, a Historic Restoration Heals

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder, one South Minneapolis community convulsed in pain and suffered massive destruction. On Juneteenth this year, it celebrates the fruition of a project that speaks volumes about community agency and ownership, and how support from intermediaries, including LISC, can be profoundly transformative in building back stronger, and more equitably, than ever before.

D.C. Seniors Find a Supportive Home in New Affordable Assisted Living Community, with Help from LISC

A $2.1 million predevelopment loan from LISC helped Gragg Cardona Partners build The Residences at Kenilworth Park, an affordable housing complex adjacent to a wetlands preserve in Northeast D.C. offering supportive services for Medicaid-eligible and other qualified elderly residents 60 and older. The development meets high-quality accessibility standards and provides on-site certified nurses and aides, access to nature, community and nutritious food, among many other keys to well-being.
