We had lots of news this week – here’s a quick rundown of top items:
New CRL Research on For-Profit Colleges
New research from our affiliate, the Center for Responsible Lending (CRL), shows how for-profit colleges have a disproportionate impact on low-income students, African Americans and women. CRL’s new report includes an interactive map with fact sheets for all states where sufficient data was available.
New Loan for a Mission-Focused Charter School
This week we celebrated a new Self-Help loan for Marshall High School in Middletown, Ohio. Marshall is a charter school focused on dropout prevention and recovery services. The principal, Chuck Hall, has a special passion for his work -- find out more and hear his story in a brief video.
Action Greensboro Relocating to Self-Help’s Downtown Greensboro Office
Action Greensboro, an organization that acts as a catalyst for public-private partnerships in Greensboro, NC, announced a relocation of its offices to the downtown Greensboro Self-Help building. More details in the Triad Business Journal.
New Book on Building a Sustainability Team
For several years, Self-Help has made an internal investment in sustainability, as well as making it part of our external projects. We’re excited that Self-Help’s Environmental Stewardship Committee is featured in a new book by Nikki Pava, Green Wisdom.
Healthy Eating Begins with Salad, Right?
Self-Help’s communication and development teams kicked off the week with a pot luck salad bar. (Brownies and cookies were also part of the meal, but baby steps, right?) Meanwhile, we’re helping to create healthier communities by lending to businesses that make healthy food distribution more efficient and equitable.
