Sponsors Needed for Tent City 2010 - Benefiting women, children and families in shelters in New Haven

11/18/2010 - 6:00pm - 10:00pm

Every woman, child or family that has lost a home or needed shelter has a story to tell and this year we want to make sure their stories are heard. On Thursday, November 18, 2010 from 6pm-10pm, the City of New Haven’s Community Services Administration in partnership with New Haven agencies will be hosting its annual homeless awareness campaign and fundraiser, Tent City on the Green, to benefit the increasing number of women, youth and families requiring shelter.

Area organizations, groups and city departments are being asked to support the cause by raising money to pitch a tent on the green. Each group is being asked to raise money to sponsor a tent. The goal is to have at least 25 tents pitched with a fundraising goal of $1,000 or more for each tent, with recognition of your donation. However, donations of any amount are welcome. A $250 donation will provide a sign with your name or group's name placed on the Green with recognition of your donation. In addition, the CT Foodbank will also be on site to receive non-perishable food item donations as part of the event.

You can donate online (see above) or write a check to "United Way" with “Tent City 2010” written in the memo line of the check. Checks should be mailed to Dr. Chisara N. Asomugha, Community Services Administrator, City Hall, 165 Church Street, New Haven, CT 06510. No cash will be exchanged on the Green; however, a city employee will accept donations in the atrium of City Hall that evening.

Food and entertainment will be provided throughout the evening.

“The power to end homelessness is within our city halls, places of worship, and community organizations. To end homelessness we must mobilize the power.”

Connecting Local People to the Prosperity of Place

Our latest LISC white paper examines emerging strategies that connect industrial district revitalization to local workforce efforts and how investments in industrial districts can fuel programs designed to train low-income residents and ensure they access local jobs. The paper takes a close look at how this plays out in the field with two case studies from Brooklyn, NY and one from Jackson, MI. Read on!

Partnership for the Bay's Future, in Close-Up

An article in the Bay Area magazine Gentry takes a careful look at how Partnership for the Bay's Future, LISC's collaboration with the San Francisco Foundation, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, Genentech, the Ford Foundation, Kaiser Permanente and others is tackling the region's extreme affordable housing shortage, alongside transportation access and economic opportunity. "Housing has to be considered everybody's challenge and everybody's opportunity," says LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones in the piece. That collective ownership and the diversity of sectors in the partnership "are the only way we're really going to make true progress."

Talent Development Catalyzes Opportunity

A strong and vibrant workforce helps fuel community growth as well as business success. That’s why Union Pacific Railroad is supporting LISC Financial Opportunity Centers and contributing the expertise of its staff to industrial training programs that help people compete for family-sustaining jobs. Union Pacific’s Chiquita Morgan urges employers to "get out from behind our walls" and help advance the efforts of workforce development agencies, neighborhood groups and others who are helping people build a stronger financial future for themselves and their community.
