Hi everyone, Just wanted to be sure you had heard about the opportunity to " Drive Out Ebola". Take care as always and thanks in advance for your donations.

An exciting new commitment from Citi Foundation will ramp up LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities program and help some 10,000 American workers get the training and support they need to take on quality jobs in growth industries like health care and solar energy. The funding will enable 40 community organizations across the country to intensify their Bridges work, connecting residents to skills development and jobs, along with financial, health and housing services that improve quality of life.

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones and Diane Yentel, CEO of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, make the imperative case for two key housing programs in an op-ed for Affordable Housing Finance.
