What does a healthier New Haven look like? How can we build it?

 

The Health Equity Alliance and the Health Matters! Commission want to hear from you about what it takes to build a healthy New Haven. Your input will contribute to the creation of a video documentary that will be debuted during our Fall 2010 Visioning a Healthier City Conference and shared with stakeholders and key influencers in New Haven.

              

               Why talk about a healthy New Haven?

 

The health and wellbeing of New Haven depends not only on the health of its citizens but on the health of the community.

 

                Who is involved in this effort?

 

Partners and supporters from across local government and the New Haven community are working with us to create a Healthy New Haven!

 

               Why should you become involved in this effort?

 

A healthy New Haven begins with you! Through your support and participation, you and fellow Elm City residents will become a part of an ambitious and achievable goal of making New Haven a safer and healthier city in which to live.

Building Women’s Futures

Only by reckoning with the past are we able to create a society that honors the dignity and wellbeing of all Americans. In recognition of Women’s History Month, we shine a spotlight on three LISC sites where our work is led by women and supports women in the communities we serve—and aims to build a future where everyone can thrive and prosper.

Impact Investing Expert Will Lead LISC’s New Atlanta Office

Dale Royal, a community developer with 30 years’ experience bringing economic development, affordable housing and transportation opportunities to underserved neighborhoods, will be the inaugural executive director of LISC’s newest office in Atlanta, GA. LISC has already invested $18 million in Atlanta for workforce and youth development projects, and our SBA lending affiliate, immito, has just closed its first transformative loan in the city. Royal’s arrival will take that commitment to another level, leveraging his expertise in connecting communities with the capital to help them flourish.

A LISC Leader Named “History Maker”—Just in Time for Women’s History Month

Candice Streett, executive director of LISC Virginia, has dedicated most of her working life to community development in Virginia. As she prepares to “downshift” from the position, she is being honored as a 2019 Richmond History Maker by the historic Valentine Museum, for her efforts on behalf of the city’s communities and her innovative economic development initiatives. In an interview with The Community Foundation, she reflects on the lessons from her journey. The most important one? “I’ve learned that we need to always listen first to those who have the most at stake—neighborhood residents.”
