New Haven Shooting Victim Needs Help

Henry was shot on his way home from work back in February of this year. He has been fighting for his life ever since and it's increasingly looking like he's going to make it! He's most recently been in a rehab facility and they want to release him.....either to his own home or to a nursing home for an indefinite period of time. Unfortunately, the family's current home is not a viable option because it's a second floor apartment and Henry is wheelchair bound. They have found a suitable first… Continue

Event Notifications based on location

The NHPD announced that they will start using the webservice nixle (http://www.nixle.com/) to send crime alerts. However, it seems like you can also sign up to the service as a non-profit and define a geographical area and people can sign up to that as a 'watch area' and get email events for alerts (events, meetings, etc.) in that area.

A Market That Kindles Culture and Commerce

In St. Paul, MN, a summer celebration of arts and entrepreneurship, modeled on night markets in Asia, has galvanized commerce and culture along University Avenue. LISC's longtime partner, the Asian Economic Development Association, is leading the charge to revitalize the district, where Southeast Asian residents and businesspeople have incorporated a "a Minnesota twist."

How Arts and Culture Can Catalyze Rural Development

In an interview for Rural Voices, a publication of the Housing Assistance Council, Bob Reeder, Rural LISC's director for national programs, discusses the importance of inclusion, diversity and economic equity when bringing arts and culture into community development efforts. With those key ingredients, creative placemaking can be a winning proposition for rural revitalization.

What a Farmers Market Can Do

In honor of National Farmers Market Week (August 6 to 12), we’re recognizing the extraordinary markets that LISC has helped launch, grow and support, and how much good they bring to their communities.
