•  Hull House: Could it happen here?

    THANK YOU for your interest in this event. We have postponed the panel until Spring 2013

    Hull House: Could it happen here?

    The Hull House Association had more than 50 programs at over 40 sites throughout Chicago and served over 60,000 individuals every year. Yet, after 122 years it had to close its doors and file for bankruptcy.

    Could it happen in Minnesota where we have a strong tradition and rich history in the settlement house approach to community building?

    Join us Saturday morning November 10th for breakfast and an interactive discussion of missed opportunities, community dynamics and organizational sustainability. Kate Barr, Executive Director of Nonprofit Assistance Fund and Adjunct Faculty member in Hamline's Nonprofit Masters Program, will facilitate a discussion with Twin Cites leaders in community building. We will examine what happened to Hull House and the warning signs as well as prudent responses to the challenges today's nonprofits face.

    Panelist include:
    Armando Camacho, Executive Director of Neighborhood House
    Dan Rodriquez, Executive Director of Merrick Community Services
    Jennifer Blevins, Director of Brian Coyle Center

    The program is sponsored by the Hamline School of Business Master in Nonprofit Management Program, BankCherokee, MACC Alliance of Connected Communities, and the Nonprofit Graduate Student Organization.
