Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

PUSHing for Development Without Displacement in Buffalo

PUSH (People United for Sustainable Housing), a long-time LISC partner, has made extraordinary gains in disinvested parts of Buffalo by developing green affordable housing, workforce programs, community cohesion and even a land bank. An article in Next City plumbs the group’s mission and inventive strategies to boost prosperity for residents while trying to prevent displacement. Over the past decade, LISC has invested nearly $12 million in grants and equity in PUSH projects.

Underwriting Pay for Success Transactions

At the recent Opportunity Finance Network annual conference in D.C., LISC and partners hosted a panel that dove into the ins and outs of underwriting Pay For Success transactions. Borrowing strategies from traditional debt financing, the panelists walked the audience through the special considerations that can make for a successful Pay For Success deal.

LISC’s Julia Ryan in NY Times Letter: Community Efforts are Key to Crime Reduction

In response to a New York Times article on the role of citizens in crime reduction, Julia Ryan, LISC’s vice president of health and safety, wrote a letter to the editor underscoring the importance of community nonprofits and residents in the success of these efforts. Ryan points to LISC research that proves community-led strategies work and calls for appropriate investment in community-led revitalization.
