Boys in Motion

Last fall, middle school boys at Betsy Ross Arts Magnet School learned the high kicks, spins, and quick dance moves of the Brazilian marital art Capoeira. The after-school workshop, offered by the Elm City Dance Collective and Connecticut Capoeira Center, was a hit with the students and welcomed by school faculty as an innovative way to engage boys. 

“It was a pleasure to see the boys support and help each other gain confidence and learn about group interactions,” says Sylvia…

Transforming Behavioral Health

At a local mental health clinic, all the patients were required to pass through a metal detector. Yet the clinicians and staff entered through a different set of doors with no security. After a series of training sessions provided by The Connecticut Women’s Consortium, clinic administrators came to realize this sent the wrong message to patients. Because trust is at the foundation of a successful patient-clinician relationship, the different set of rules potentially undermined the successful…

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

Home for the Holidays, and for Good

This is the story of Michael Elliot, who was homeless and fighting cancer when his life took a sharp turn for the better. Through a unique partnership with ProMedica Health in Toledo, where he was receiving treatment, Elliot was introduced to a LISC Financial Opportunity Center. There, he worked with a financial coach, who helped him secure a safe, affordable apartment and even begin saving money—all within a few months. Said Elliot, “It’s the greatest thing in the world that I have a place to call home.”

Kindling Hope in a Chicago Neighborhood

You can feel the change, say residents. Police data show it, too. In just one year, crime and violence have dropped precipitously in Englewood, a Chicago neighborhood where LISC has long partnered with local leaders, according to an article in the Chicago Tribune. How did it change? A concerted mix of strategic policing and community engagement, says Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for health & safety—the very approach LISC supports in Englewood and dozens of communities across the country.

LISC Pledges New Commitment to Health

LISC has invested deeply in the health and wellbeing of people in the places where we work for 40 years. But we’re upping the ante. President and CEO Maurice Jones calls partners to join us in upending health disparities through tailored investments in communities, and designing a plan to assess the health outcomes of our broad work in economic development, housing, safety and financial stability.
