The Delmar DivINe is the reimagination of an historic hospital built in 1904. The hospital became a series of health organizations before it closed in 2014. In 2015 the campus was purchased to be the future site of a multi-use real estate project that will house about 35 nonprofits, 3 service retailers and one restaurant as well as 150 apts. for teachers, nurses, social workers, public safety—young, diverse professionals who want a great place to live at an affordable price. The location is on Delmar Boulevard, the infamous dividing line in St.. Louis of rich and poor, Black and White. The “lines” are being intentionally blurred.

When seasons of severe challenges hit your community, where will you turn? Community resilience is best done at the local level, informed by the direct interactions between citizens, government, nonprofits, education, churches, and businesses. Nonprofit centers such as Serve Denton are evidence of this. It’s a one-stop shop that offers colocation and networking to ensure people who are in need in Denton County can easily find help. Now more than ever, it's crucial for communities to initiate a forward-thinking approach to growing resilient communities. Our communities rely on this planning of meeting current and future needs to sustain their resiliency. The adage is true: if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.

Last month, NCN launched our Regional Chapters meetups with 10 chapters across the US and Canada. The theme that I heard over and over again in this first meetup - community. At the most basic level, the Nonprofit Centers Network is a community of people who envision a world where every nonprofit has access to a quality workspace and quality infrastructure to deliver on their mission. In our 10 Regional Chapter launches, I saw 10 different regional communities start to come together to learn from each other, and share how they create and support their own communities in their nonprofit centers.
