Director’s Notes: GLAHNF Change

Director’s Notes: GLAHNF Change

by Jill Ryan

In order to serve grassroots groups and citizens better, GLAHNF has recently completed a year long assessment and planning process. Through this process we learned a great deal about the needs of groups in the region and the types of services available to meet those needs.

We clearly learned from this work that GLAHNF does fill a critical need for grassroots advocates and that there is no other group filling this particular niche. However, we also learned that we could do a better job of providing services.

In response, you will see some changes coming to the services available through GLAHNF in the coming months. These positive changes include organizing our assistance around the basins of each Great Lake rather than around geo-political boundaries, more funding available for grassroots groups, new opportunities to connect with others doing similar work through regional meetings, and more.

Stay tuned for more information about the changes in the GLAHNews and on our websites, and And as always, please let us know what you think of our services.

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”
