Working together to build a stronger community - now and forever

Neighborhoods: What is Working

Institutional Precipitation

Institutions can enable citizen action if they can be a precipitant rather than a programmatic intervener. A precipitating action avoids defining for neighbors what should be done, how it should be done and who should do it. Instead, it acts to precipitate citizens performing these three actions.

Organizing the Unorganizables

The leader in the drug-use harm elimination movement, Ann Livingston talks about her work as a community organizer dedicated to working at the local, regional and national levels to improve the lives of people who use illegal drugs.

Life after FIX

Vancouver Area Network of Drug Users (VANDU) co-founder Ann Livingston talks about the successes and setbacks in establishing Insite, Vancouver's supervised injection site and the only one of its kind in North America.

An Electrician Plugs into a Promising Career, With Room to Shine

Seasonal job insecurity meant financial stability was usually just out of reach for Antonio Gregory and his family. But last year, after connecting with a LISC-funded Bridges to Career Opportunity program in Detroit, Gregory got the certifications, financial education and support he was looking for, to advance in work and in life.

Financial Education is a Key to Success—for Our Youth, and Our Economy

In an op-ed for Yahoo! Finance, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones hit home the value of financial literacy as an essential skill on the path to financial wellbeing for all Americans—and to a healthy U.S. economy. Thinking back to his own childhood and the lessons in money management he absorbed working on his family’s farm, Jones calls for the public and private sectors to join forces and connect underserved youth to the kind of financial education that can make the American Dream a reality.

Accounting for a Family’s Financial Future

A young mother in Chicago has solid footing on a career path and has taken control of her family’s financial future, thanks to a LISC-supported Financial Opportunity Center. LISC’s innovative Twin Accounts™ are part of the process, allowing her to save and build a credit score, all at the same time.
