We run a poetry venue, which takes place every first Friday of every month. We are located at the New Haven People's Center, 37 Howe St, New Haven, CT. Time: 7pm - 10pm. Our next event is August 3rd. We are featuring the CT Slam Team "VERBAL SLAP," and looking to have the support of Connecticut with their presence. It is a send off for the team; and we would like to send the message that the state of CT supports it's team as we do our sports teams. We are also looking to raise 3,500.00 dollars for travel and lodging. If you can, we not only appreciate you showing up at our send off on August 3rd, but we would also like for you to spread the word, and go to our fundraising website and make a donation as generous as your heart desires. Thank you very much in advance. We will represent our state like a proud flag waving.

The LISC Lending department has been included for the fifth consecutive year as an ImpactAssets 50 2020 Fund, a who’s-who of fund managers dedicated to creating positive social and environmental impact. This year saw a record number of applications. As a leader in community development financing, LISC received the ranking in light of our $475 million outstanding portfolio balance and a delinquency rate under 2%.
An in depth feature on Curbed.com details how mission-based groups, especially churches, are skilling up to turn their under-used land into affordable housing and other facilities their communities desperately need. And LISC initiatives in San Antonio, New York and the Bay Area are leading the charge. “Churches really feel the impact of the displacement issue in their communities,” says LISC Bay Area’s Laurel Engbretson in the article. “There’s a higher level of energy to get involved in this, because they understand the larger market context.”
LISC’s New York Land Opportunity Program is helping churches and other mission-driven groups scale the steep learning curve that leads to developing affordable housing on their land. Three years in, the effort is making promising inroads into the city’s affordable housing crisis, and inspiring similar initiatives in communities across the country.
