Purpose Built Communities at the Chautauqua Institution

We had the honor of participating in several sessions at the Chautauqua Institution this past August to discuss the Purpose Built Communities model, progress on the ground in several neighborhoods and the connection between our work and better public health. Our president Carol Naughton gave a talk explaining the Purpose Built Communities model and how it came about, and then moderated a panel with three of our Network Members, the chairman of the Bayou District Foundation (New Orleans) Gerry Barousse, the president of the East Lake Foundation (Atlanta) Danny Shoy, and the Executive Director of Seventy Five North (Omaha) Othello Meadows. We were also joined by Dr. Doug Jutte, executive director of the Build Healthy Places Network, who led a session about the connection between community development and health outcomes.
