Event Description

Greetings!  

Following up on our December 8th New Haven Promise Zone Community Forum and as a kick-off to the next phase of planning for community transformation, we are inviting those who have been involved in the New Haven Promise Zone initiative to come together to break bread and build our connections on: 

Tuesday, February 10 from 4:00-6:00 PM at the 

Immanuel Baptist Church Hall, 1324 Chapel Street, New Haven. 

This will be both a celebration of many new and ongoing initiatives and innovations in New Haven and an opportunity to get to know each other and our work.  

The event will include an exploratory conversation in small groups on how we can work together differently going forward to create secure and empowering relationships for the people who depend on us as community agencies and leaders.  

We will also present briefly plans for the next phase of work on the City Transformation Plan that will get underway in February.   

We want to acknowledge and promote the sense of New Haven as a caring, loving place with a long tradition of social justice and a commitment to equity.  I hope you can join us. 

Please use this form to RSVP to let us know if you will attend.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.

The way is known; we need to activate the will.
