Leaders In Focus – Barbara Shaw

Join us on Tuesday, April 30th for an inspiring Leaders in Focus event! We’re thrilled to welcome Barbara Shaw, Executive Director of Hands on Hartford, along with her esteemed colleagues,...

Discover for yourself: the best leaders are the best learners.

No matter your age, no matter how long you have lived in or around Hartford, there’s always a new perspective to be found to help our region grow. It’s the perspective we find when we gather face to face and, from our different viewpoints, focus on a common goal.

  • "Summer Nexus opened my eyes to the community around me and has given me a better understanding of myself. I can confidently say that I am not the same person I was when I started this program."

  • "Receiving classroom instruction at different nonprofit locations several each week, we were able to develop hands-on experience and practical knowledge. One of the most positive takeaways from my experience is seeing the passion the staff has for the mission of the organization"

    Mario J. Chiappetti

Matthew Larson, Megan Fitzgerald!!

Last month, LGH's Board of Directors convened for a day-long retreat at The 224 EcoSpace in Hartford. Our time together was enriched by regional insights shared by Mark Abraham from DataHaven. In the afternoon, we engaged with the Enneagram to deepen our understanding of how to effectively harness our individual strengths in support of LGH’s mission.

Surrounded by inspiring artwork in The 224’s Collaboration Centre, it was a day dedicated to learning and fostering community. If you haven’t experienced this vibrant community space for your own events, you’re missing out! Special thanks to Rev. Lydell Brown and his team for their hospitality and for showcasing the diverse offerings of The 224 EcoSpace.
