The Nonprofit Centers Network has an active listserv as part of its membership. As various cities or states across US and Canada enacted shelter in place type orders, center managers started chiming in with questions and steps taken, and together our community began to navigate this unprecedented time.  It became clear that it was time to take this discussion into a webinar format and open it up to a wider community, not just members. So on April 3rd, NCN hosted a panel discussion style webinar around Managing Shared Spaces During COVID-19 addressing concerns around financial sustainability, the logistics of an empty building and maintaining community. NCN’s new Co-Directors Alexis Paza and David Schrayer joined Saul Ettlin of Community Vision and NCN’s Steering Committee to dive into these topics, guided by pre-submitted questions and the listserv discussions. Below is a summary of NCNs suggestions around these topics, including tips shared in the chat box from some of our 80 participants.

The Posner Center convenes, connects and catalyzes the global development community to collaborate for greater impact. We do this by bringing together organizations and building an engaged, thriving, community – a community where people meet and learn about one another, exchange ideas, access shared resources and support, and ultimately combine their expertise to generate more lasting solutions to global poverty

When founder Dr. Kay Glasser began gathering support for the Center in 1985, nonprofit centers were an obscure concept. In our Gulf Coast region of Florida, it was a completely new idea; untried and untested. But as she reflected many years later, “A strong ideal can capture an imagination and control a life.” Through sheer tenacity and belief in her vision, she gained the support of Alex and Betty Schoenbaum, along with municipal and community partners - and managed to convince a consortium of financial institutions that this was a viable concept that just makes sense for our human services community. The Glasser/Schoenbaum Human Services Center opened its doors in 1990, and 30 years later, we are still going strong. We know that human service providers thrive when they work together in a supportive system. We are the hub of that collaborative system, leading to success for those who are making our community a better place.
