Helaina Hovitz

I’m a native New Yorker who has always had the unreasonable notion that I can help change the world. My greatest passion is writing about charities, social good, nonprofits, societal issues, philanthropy and inspirational people.

I am making my debut as an author in September of 2016, and am Co-Founder and Editorial Director of the brand new Headlines for the Hopeful, a digital news service designed to spotlight the unique and innovative efforts put forth by people and organizations working to create a better future.

I’m also the New York City Restaurant Guide Editor at The Daily Meal and a contributor to ForbesHuffington Post, and Recovery.Org.

Most recently, I served as Managing Editor at the Good News Network, Editor in Chief and Co-Creator of Affect Magazine, and as a Contributing Editor at Avenue Magazine. I have also written for The New York Times, Salon, Newsday, Teen Vogue, Chicago Tribune, SCENE Magazine, Time Out NY, Broadway.com, New York Observer, New York Press, Narratively, amNewYork, The Lo Down, New York Post, the Downtown Express, the Villager, Chelsea Now and Social Life.
