IRIS- Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services: Urgent Appeal for Apartments and Beds

Refugees arriving this week need Two 2-Bedroom Apartments and Seven single Beds
 
We are welcoming two refugee families this Thursday, September 15th.  One is from the Democratic Republic of the Congo: a single mother with four young children.  And one is from Liberia:  four daughters (17, 10, and 6 year old twins)  reuniting with their father who has lived here since 2005.
 
As always, we want to give our newest Americans a warm welcome.  But, with so many refugees arriving over the past two months, we are having difficulty finding apartments and beds.
 
We need two 2-BR apartments in or near the East Rock area or in West Haven.  
 
And we need seven beds; that’s single (twin size) beds.   We need the mattresses, the box springs, and the bed frames.
 
We have just about all of the other necessary furniture, thanks to Helping Hands, the great used furniture store on State Street.
 
If you know about a 2BR apartment that is available and affordable --- PLEASE let me know.
 
And if you are aware of any extra beds  -- PLEASE let me know.
 
You can call me on my cell any time:  860 805 7805
 
Thanks
Chris

An Open Streets Family Reunion: Reflections from the 2018 Open Streets Summit

By Ryan O’Connor, Director of Programs, 8 80 Cities Recently 8 80 Cities wrote a blog post about open streets being a labour of love.

LISC Teams Up with Wells Fargo to Spur Small Businesses in Puerto Rico

LISC is working with Wells Fargo on an effort to spur economic recovery across Puerto Rico. A new grant is supporting LISC’s Kiva Puerto Rico Match Fund to help entrepreneurs launch and grow small businesses, while also helping LISC expand its capacity to support disaster recovery nationwide. It builds on LISC's long experience in communities hit hard by major hurricanes, tornados, floods and fires.

“Small Business Is Personal for Us”: Q&A with Julie Huston, CEO of immito

Last year, LISC launched its newest subsidiary, the SBA-guaranteed lender immito, to scale our ability to reach and support underserved small businesses and help spur job growth across the country. Julie Huston, immito’s founding president, is a seasoned small business expert—in fact, she recently testified before Congress re: new budget proposals that would hamper small business entrepreneurs’ access to credit. We caught up with Huston at her base in Denver to learn more about immito, the economic and social power of small business, and why all this is so close to Huston’s heart.
