In a little town south of Atlantic City there sits a six-story elephant Lucy is a National Historic Site (built in 1881) and she is in a bit of disrepair needing attention. But wait! PETA will help.

Recasting the Narratives That Shape Our Lives

A leader in journalism innovation, transformative change, and employee and community engagement describes how innovators in journalism are reimagining and experimenting with what journalism might look like today.

Rediscovering Welcome

Creating welcoming places is a key step to ensure we can all feel a sense of belonging and worthiness. To welcome means to really "see" the person walking through the door, to see their gifts and to be open to receiving help, wisdom and guidance from the person we are meeting or helping.

Strengthening the Role of Faith-Based Organizations to Support Emergency Preparedness

A new case study by the Tamarack Institute shows how faith groups can add great value to neighborhoods in responding to local emergencies.

LISC in the WSJ: Helping NYC Corner Stores Keep Up With Neighborhood Change

An article in The Wall Street Journal details a creative program to help neighborhood bodegas update their look and stock, and keep pace with demand as new, younger clientele moves in. Together with longtime partner Cypress Hills Local Development Corp, LISC is spearheading the "Commercial Corridor Challenge," supporting small businesses to prosper—not flounder—as demographics change.

Healthcare Partnerships That Help Heal People and Communities

In a blog for the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton Healthcare Quarterly, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones makes the case for pioneering partnerships between healthcare organizations and community development, uniting to upend the roots of poor health. LISC’s collaborations with ProMedica and Bon Secours Health System, among other companies, are powerful examples of how our combined assets, knowledge and experience can begin to close America’s longevity gap.

Want to Stanch the Homelessness Crisis in California? Vote for This Bond

That’s the message in a powerful op-ed by LISC San Diego director Ricardo Flores for the Union-Tribune. A proposed affordable housing bond could funnel badly needed capital into the creation of homes targeted for the state’s most vulnerable residents, which would ease the extreme housing shortage and stoke the economy at the same time.
