Through paid work training in construction and property management and an array of unpaid program services, EMERGE participants have been able to change the way they make decisions, and move on to long term employment.
With the help of the Community Offender Re-Entry Experience (C.O.R.E.) EMERGE Connecticut Inc. offers a unique "Earn and Learn" program model. While EMERGE participants learn new skills, they are required to participate in self-paced, highly-individualized literacy and numeracy workshops through Khan Academy to improve their scores on the CASAS scale. Crew members also take in-house parenting classes, employability workshops and our "Real Talk" group therapy sessions as part of a model designed to promote better decision making and emotional maturity.

Latino/a/x entrepreneurs, many of them owners of small, neighborhood-serving businesses, contribute some $800 billion a year to the U.S. economy. In recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month, we checked in with Hector M. Treto, a businessperson himself and consultant with RAIL CDC in the Phoenix area. RAIL connects local entrepreneurs to Spanish-speaking small business experts who can help hone business plans and offer culturally relevant technical assistance.
Chavez Boxing Gym is among the diverse small businesses around the McDowell Road corridor of Phoenix receiving expert business assistance through the community-based organization RAIL CDC. Supported by LISC Phoenix, the work is one way LISC seeks to unleash talent and level the entrepreneurial playing field, and we weighed in with owner Pete Chavez, to hear his remarkable story, in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month.
In an op-ed for The Virginian-Pilot, LISC Virginia executive director Jane Ferrara lays out the ways the proposed LIFT Act could make homeownership, at 20-year, fixed rate mortgages, accessible to first-time, first-generation buyers—the very people who are often edged out of the American Dream. The legislation, in partnership with home-buying programs like the ones LISC leads, Ferrara writes, can help "bridge the racial wealth gap as well as the gap between dreams and reality for the next generation of aspiring homeowners."
