End ‘Conversion’ Therapies for Gay and Transgender Youth

It is difficult, in fact impossible, to draw any definitive conclusions about what is involved in dealing with transgender teens and associate issues from any one situation.  These are complex situations and no two people's situations are exactly the same.  Some families have dealt with transgender family members very successfully, and both the families and the individuals are doing well.  In other situations -- when people are not well informed, or when some…

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
