MILENNIALS

It is always amusing to me the way that the marketing and advertising world categorizes and labels segments and cross sections of society. Nontheless this Milennials report I have found interesting. As we serve the people of all ages it is at the very least to read about alleged overriding and intertwined interests and inclinations of various age groups. As we attempt to serve always more effectively  our various non-profit constituencies, perhaps this report might shed some always needed…

Making Recovery Equitable

LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones joined a panel of researchers and other experts brought together by the Philadelphia Fed to discuss how government at all levels can help small businesses recover from the pandemic, and how these programs must evolve to ensure equitable recovery. The webinar is part of an ongoing series examining best practices for bringing about equity as we emerge from the crisis.

In an op-ed for Philadelphia's NPR affiliate, Andy Frishkoff, ED of LISC Philly, and Nilda Ruiz, a longtime LISC board member and director of Asociación Puertorriqueños en Marcha, explain how community engagement, combined with intensive investment from federal, state and local entities, can successfully address the affordable housing gap.

Building the Skills & Confidence to Land a Good Job: One Woman's Journey

Volunteers of America Texas (VOATX) in Houston is one of more than 40 community-based partners nationwide using LISC’s Bridges to Career Opportunities model. LaSonya Bishop, VOATX’s Regional Director of Workforce, explores what it takes to help unemployed and underemployed people build their skills and find good-paying jobs – a task that is more challenging than ever with the pandemic. She does so through the lens of a Houston resident named Tamara, who overcame addiction and homelessness to graduate from a VOATX training program and get a job as a phlebotomist, which she has maintained since Covid-19 hit our shores. This is just one of many success stories catalyzed by LISC’s partnership with the Citi Foundation.
