Event Description

Bridges Healthcare, Inc., will sponsor a free community forum to discuss opioid addiction and treatment on Wednesday, May 10, 5:30 to 8:30 at the Savin Rock Conference Center.  

“Let’s Change the Story,” will feature nationally-recognized addiction and psychiatric expert Dr. Petros Levounis, chair of the Department of Psychiatry at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, who will present information on the addiction process and new treatments available to assist those who want to stop using opioids.  Dr. Levounis has appeared on national television and is featured in numerous videos and articles on addiction.

West Haven Pharmacy will be onsite to prescribe, train and dispense naloxone, the medication used to reverse an overdose. Those who want a prescription should bring their commercial or State insurance card. The CT Dept. of Consumer Protection recently approved offsite licensing for pharmacists for this purpose, so more local residents will have the means to reverse an overdose and reduce the number of deaths from opioid overdose.  West Haven recorded 21 drug overdose deaths in 2016.

LGBTQ+ Liberation and Community Development: A Reflection

In recognition and celebration of LGBTQ+ Pride Month, LISC’s Institute for Community Power delves into the intersections between the work of community development and that of queer and trans communities across the country around housing, land use, economic mobility and much more. In the piece that follows, Julia Duranti-Martinez, senior program officer for Community Research and Impact and a member of LISC's LGBTQ+ affinity group, highlights some of the struggles and triumphs of LGBTQ+ people and communities in the context of our sector, and of our society as a whole—and points to the paths leading to progress.

Where Do Workers Living on Low Incomes Stand in the Post-Pandemic Economy?

An article in Politico looks at the gains and losses—actual and potential—for lower-wage workers in the current economic climate. Katrin Kark, LISC’s director of workforce innovations, who is quoted in the piece, cautions that increased wages don’t suffice to stabilize finances or create economic mobility across the board. “Higher entry wages alone aren’t enough to close…opportunity gaps,” she says.

CDFIs + Impact Investors: New Capital Markets Analysis Highlights Opportunities and Impact

LISC and Enterprise Community Partners have released a joint white paper that catalogs how CDFIs have engaged with the capital markets in recent years. In an accompanying blog, the authors explain why this data is so critical, as economic pressure affects the availability and cost of capital for high-impact community development efforts. "The goal is to help impact investors identify how and where they might put their capital to work and what expectations they should have for performance,” they write.
