The Three Little Kids is a Hip Hop Cultural awareness play which is designed to self-empower our community by coursing the residents through a rite of passage. The production ensemble will journey through a rite of passage by learning, producing and performing a full scale production. The 3LK is produced to bridge the gap between adults and young people to heal the misunderstanding about Hip Hop culture. We see the future in which all organizations can work hand and hand to bring back the unity in our communities. We believe that this will continue to inspire the neighborhood to imagine and build its own destiny.

The Three Little Kids is based on the fairy, The Three Little Pigs, which has a Hip Hop twist to it. The Three Little Kids is a story of three kids who grow up in the community and would do anything for a record deal. The three little kids have real talent and never realized they had enough knowledge, wisdom and understanding to get them where they wanted to go. Wolf Daddy discovers the kids first and uses them to get his pockets phatt. He preyed upon Dumb because he knew that Dumb never like to read or write. He preyed upon Deaf because he knew that Deaf never like to hear what anyone kicked in his ear and Blind, Blind never saw her future, he just live for now. Wolf Daddy knew she was materialistic and had his peanut gallery Huff and Puff seduce her with jewelry and rides wherever she wanted to go.

Neighborhoods: What is Working

The Church and Proximity

How St. Matthews Episcopal Church in Westerville, Ohio created a new narrative for itself and been radically shaped by the community in which it lives and serves.

Restorative Practices: A Toolbox for Turbulent Times

Transcription of John and Peter's May 8, 2018 conversation with Thom Allena about his work in getting justice out of courthouses and into neighborhoods. Thom is a community and organizational psychologist who for nearly thirty-five years has worked in the fields of community and restorative justice, applying creative approaches to respond to crime, violence and group conflict. In Thom’s community justice work, citizens are invited to play active rather than passive roles in determining the shape of justice and become more directly involved in redressing the quality of life issues that are breached by crime.

Associating Associations: The Power of Convening

While many institutions are interested in enabling neighborhoods, they tend to focus on interventions and see convening as a means to their ends. An even more productive function could be to act as a neutral convener.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

Catalyzing Kalamazoo

For 15 years, LISC has been investing in Kalamazoo's historic Edison neighborhood, where decades of deindustrialization and decline had severed residents from jobs, educational opportunities and accessible healthcare. Today, gleaming new community facilities and flourishing small businesses are generating good jobs, and preparing people for employment. And resident-led projects to beautify the district and create social bonds are nudging the neighborhood into a more connected, dynamic future.

SSIR: Groundbreaking study looks at how neighborhood networks anchor community gains

In this week’s Stanford Social Innovation Review, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones takes a close look at the outcomes from one of the largest single-city community development efforts in the country, the decade-long New Communities Program (NCP) in Chicago. Most notable, Jones writes, is data on community networks and how closely they connect to local growth and opportunity. The evidence confirms what community developers have long assumed but previously never proven: a durable local infrastructure of nonprofits, businesses, and other stakeholders is able to both attract and absorb capital in ways that measurably improve residents’ quality of life.

Helping Americans Live Longer

Why is the U.S. falling behind other wealthy nations when it comes to life expectancy? LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones tells the New York Times that underinvestment in core human needs like housing, education and jobs is damaging the health outlook for millions of Americans. He pointed to innovative partnerships, like LISC's collaboration with Toledo-based ProMedica, as a way to raise standards of living and improve longevity. “Let’s make this the new standard of care…,” he urged.
