Colleagues,

Last night, we hosted Bill Corbett and 150 parents and professionals at Ansonia High School. The response to Bill’s presentation was phenomenal. The audience was fully engaged for two hours, made notes, and stayed after for questions. I wanted to recommend him to you – for your own trainings and reading. His venture - Cooperative Kids - gives parents simple tools to deal with the tricky issue(s) of discipline (and parental sanity). In my years of teaching and counseling, I’ve never heard anyone do it better. We paid for the evening as part of TEAM’s work in the area of family strengthening and parent outreach. There was no charge for anyone attending the presentation, and childcare and refreshments were available. We also owe thanks to the Community Foundation of Greater New Haven for their financial support of the sponsor – our Valley Family Resource Center at TEAM.

We don’t normally promote a vendor, but believe Bill is an exceptional conveyer of skills and understanding that so many young parents crave. He has a website and materials including CDs: www.StopTheTantrums.com . Of his book “Love, Limits, & Lessons”, David Morgan, our VP for Early Education, said: “I learned of Bill Corbett through a referral from a very active parent/contributor of our agency – once I listened/read Bill’s work and heard accounts from other parents of his presentation style, I wanted to secure him for part of our work around parent support and education.”

Reclaiming Charm City

A powerful new documentary offers an unvarnished portrait of residents and police in Baltimore working to stem violence in their beloved city. LISC is a proud national partner of the PBS film, helping to spark attention to its life-and-death message: through collaboration between neighbors and law enforcement, and imperative investment in underserved communities, we can make communities safer and better. It’s the very work LISC supports across the country.

LISC Invests $1M in SustainVC Impact Investing Fund

LISC is using a portion of its investable assets to reinforce its mission of catalyzing opportunity throughout the country. The strategy includes a new impact investment in SustainVC Impact Fund II, which finances enterprises that advance climate solutions, economic equality, health and education.

A New Look at Tracking—and Preventing—Displacement

Together with NYU and sponsorship from LISC, researchers at UC Berkeley have just released new findings about how development in the New York metro area is creating “islands of exclusion” and displacing more and more longtime residents. An interactive Urban Displacement Map, a byproduct of the investigation, aims to serve as an “early warning tool” to help affordable housing advocates and policy makers protect and preserve community stability.
