Event Description

We are reaching out to all members of your community to ask for your help to end child hunger in Connecticut this summer.  Starting June 22, 2019, we will be hosting a Blitz Day to raise awareness of the Summer Meals Programs that exist in New Haven and Hamden. These programs provide free, nutritious meals to children 18 years of age and younger at meal sites across CT.  Neither paperwork nor identification is required to receive a meal. 

A Blitz Day is a volunteer outreach effort to increase awareness in a town about the Summer Meals opportunities available to all children in and around your community. We are looking for volunteers to help us pound the pavement and canvas your town. 

All are welcome to join us for our summer blitz events. (This is an excellent opportunity for community members to spread awareness of a great cause and to earn volunteer hours!)

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.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
