Description Interest
The West River Watershed Youth Council was organized by Doreen Abubakar a West River Business Owner and Resident. She developed a program that would invest in youth being trained in learning activities to engage others in learning about the West River Watershed, wetlands restoration, invasive species and storm drainage and water ecology. The community youth will become educators. Our focus is to bring youth lead projects that will foster competent , capable, caring neighborhoods to become stewards of the watershed.

We hope that by engaging neighborhood youth and adults to create sustainablity, reproducible environmental improvements in their own local communities will impact the quality our watershed.

I didn't know that you were instrumental in this element of our community.  Kudos!  My family has owned property in West River for 35 years.  How can I help?

Investing in People, Place, and Resilient Rural Economies: Q&A with Caitlin Cain

"The infrastructure of our communities is not just physical; it is also social and economic,” said Caitlin Cain, the new director of Rural LISC. In a wide-ranging conversation, she talks about the impact of COVID-19, the importance of investing in communities of color and the tremendous range of rural innovation that already exists—and needs appropriate capital to grow.

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
