Neighborhoods: What is Working

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.

Who Has the Skills to Build Community? We All Do

Transcription of John and Peter's September 12th conversation with YES! Magazine co-founder Sarah van Gelder on her 12,000-mile cross-country journey learning from people who were re-making America from the ground up and how it led to starting up a new project: PeoplesHub, an online space where communities can learn and share the skills of making powerful change.

In San Diego, LISC is an Engine that Accelerates Opportunity

An in-depth article in the San Diego Union Tribune touted LISC’s new fund to spur affordable housing creation in a city facing a serious shortage. We beg to differ with the “little-known” descriptor in the article’s title, but the account of LISC’s 25 years of work in underinvested San Diego neighborhoods illustrates our role perfectly.

Diving Into a “Whole New Ocean of Capital”

Earlier this year, when LISC raised $100 million in the first-ever initial public offering of a CDFI bond, it broached a brave, new world of 21st-century nonprofit financing. An article in Next City details why tapping new capital is so important for community development today, and how LISC is leading the charge to access the market in innovative ways.

A Safe, Affordable Haven for LGBTQ Seniors

Town Hall Apartments in Chicago is an extraordinary—and rare—example of affordable housing geared for LGBTQ seniors, many of whom enter their later years with few resources after a lifetime of discrimination. It’s community development at its best, helping people access opportunities and stabilize their lives. In recognition of LGBTQ History Month, we throw a spotlight on Town Hall and hope it will serve as a path-breaking model for communities everywhere.
