Praise for Developing Affordable Housing A Practical Guide for Nonprofit Organizations Third Edition "Ben Hecht's book explains in clear language everything needed to successfully engage in nonprofit housing development. He tells how to find the money, how to generate good design and quality construction, and how to improve management--a complete, well-researched, and well-presented 'A to Z' approach." --Henry G. Cisneros, former secretary U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development "Ben Hecht's book makes the affordable housing development process accessible for communities and practitioners everywhere. Developing Affordable Housing should be on the bookshelf of every organization that cares about people and wants to make affordable housing possible." --Rey Ramsey, former chairman, Habitat for Humanity CEO, One Economy Corporation "The development of affordable housing is as much a journey as a destination. Ben Hecht's book provides maps and bridges while not losing sight of the challenging but elusive goal of providing decent, safe, and affordable housing." --Nicolas P. Retsinas, Director, Joint Center for Housing Studies Harvard University "In our work to increase the supply of safe, decent homes for those who need homes the most, we appreciate the power of partnerships and the value of information. So does Ben Hecht. Developing Affordable Housing is more than a practical guide for nonprofits--it's a library, a trusted advisor, and a road map. Read this book and benefit from its wisdom." --Stacey D. Stewart, President and CEO, Fannie Mae Foundation

Nonprofit managers have been slow to embrace the digital age. Although technology has transformed the face of the for-profit sector and how it operates, nonprofit use of technology to improve internal functioning and to change the way services are delivered is almost nonexistent. These limitations actually have opened the door for for-profits to "compete" successfully for traditional nonprofit business, such as moving people from welfare to work. ManagingNonprofits.org is both a call to action and a roadmap for change. Each chapter defines an element of Dynamic Management and identifies "digital hotspots" or places within that element, and the nonprofit's implementation of that element, where digital issues will most likely arise and need to be addressed. In addition, at the end of each chapter, Maxims of Dynamic Management or core truths that the authors have found helpful to follow in their day-to-day experience as nonprofit leaders in bringing Dynamic Management to their organization are provided. Finally, the authors highlight the experience of various nonprofit and for-profit organizations that have successfully made elements of Dynamic Management a reality in their organizations.
