At this time, we appreciate more than ever the work of local entrepreneurs in charity and business. This is the first in a series of posts highlighting causes supported by the Freecoast community. For the full series, click here.
The obvious starting point for our series on Freecoast community causes is the Human Action Foundation (HAF). This charity was founded by Freecoasters and seeks to provide support for alternative approaches to work, school, and community.
Many people are finding that traditional institutions are no longer relevant to their interests. But when they opt for an individual approach, they lose the support provided by these institutions.
HAF provides programs to address this deficit. From its inaugural liberty community center on the Seacoast of New Hampshire, HAF supports a range of events for entrepreneurs, artists, homeschoolers, and anyone else on a path of self-improvement.
The Foundation’s impact is felt in the local community and through a network of freethinkers extending far beyond the Seacoast. For liberty anywhere bolsters liberty everywhere.
In this pandemic, HAF remains active providing support to community members who have experienced layoffs, as well as those adapting to remote work or homeschooling for the first time.
Charities not directly involved in medical care are experiencing strain. In consideration of public health, HAF has suspended events at its liberty community center since March 16th. The Foundation quickly pivoted to providing an online meeting venue; nonetheless, many programs have had to be delayed or cancelled. While HAF has seen remarkable loyalty from its donors despite their personal hardships, we encourage any readers of sufficient means to consider including HAF in your charitable giving.
Whether supporting freelancers especially hard-hit by the lockdown, or sharing knowledge on remote work and school with the wider community, the Human Action Foundation has a vital role to play in helping people cope with this crisis.
