Neighborhoods: What is Working

When Disaster Hits, Your First Responder Probably Will Not Be a First Responder

The FIRST assets in a disaster are neighbors. In fact, it turns out that while your neighbors have everything to do with your immediate chances in a disaster, your neighbors and their collective extended connections determine how well and how fast your community will recover.

Organizational Culture of Fear: The Shadow Side of US Culture

Don't let the title mislead you. Peter's intimate conversation with life, career and business coach CJ Liu is profound, touching and funny. Ostensibly a discussion of Peter's book Flawless Consulting, CJ says at the end, "We didn't talk about the book at all." Instead, the conversation ranged from personal transformation, integrating who you are with what you do and outlets for pain and rage to freedom, authenticity, courage and the power of co-creation--plus yoga, cartoons, parenting and much more.

The Problem With Problems

One of the reasons we may have so little productive citizen creativity at the local level is that people buy into the belief that the purpose of getting together is to deal with a problem. There is another purpose that is probably more important: engagement that mobilizes citizen creativity and contributions.

Local Initiatives Support Corporation

In Flint, an Avenue Leading to Safety

For decades, the residents of Flint, Michigan have endured high rates of crime alongside devastating unemployment, depopulation and blight—and recently, a severe water crisis on top of that. But the energy and commitment of neighbors, business people and key anchor institutions are transforming the historic University Avenue corridor. Crime there, in turn, has plummeted. A Department of Justice community safety grant, with training and technical assistance from LISC, has ramped up those efforts and is helping make the corridor a model of problem-solving, and optimism, for all of Flint.

National Building Museum Features Innovative Chicago Development

LISC’s Meghan Harte takes a look at a new exhibit at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., that considers the future of housing design, with a particular eye to affordability and meeting the changing needs of families. It features a LISC-supported project in Chicago, the award-winning La Casa, which offers affordable apartments to university students in the city’s Pilsen community.

A Hive of Small Business Activity in Boston

In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 25), we're profiling emerging enterprises in the communities where we work that have benefited from LISC small business lending and support. In Boston, Northeastern University and LISC have launched the Impact Lending initiative to spur women- and minority-owned businesses and local economies that surround the university. Honeycomb Café, a bustling new locavore restaurant in South Boston’s Dorchester area, offers a picture of impact lending at its finest.
