Event Description

Housing Can Improve School Performance, Children's Health -- Tickets Going Fast!

How much better would children do in school, how much would their health improve, and how many state education dollars would be saved if children didn't have to live in housing beset with mold, dust mites, lead paint and other hazards? How would children and school budgets fare if children could live in housing their parents could afford, so there was less mobility, homelessness and overcrowding? If families that can now afford only certain neighborhoods with few community services and overburdened schools could move to affordable homes in towns, neighborhoods and school systems that better met their children's needs, would the children be better off, and would our economy and state expenditures benefit? Those questions will be explored and answered at "Housing, Education & Healthcare: Creating Housing That Enhances School Performance & Health," 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. April 28 at The Lyceum in Hartford. Part of the five-part "Housing: The Hub of Public Policy" 2010 Lyceum Series, the free forum will feature experts from Columbia and Yale Universities, the state Departments of Public Health, Education and Children and Families, CT Children's Medical Center, the non-profit sector, major foundations and other key stakeholders. For reservations and information: David Fink, david@ctpartnership, and Sarah Benson,, or call 860/244-0066.

“Lifting As We Climb”: In South Minneapolis, a Historic Restoration Heals

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s murder, one South Minneapolis community convulsed in pain and suffered massive destruction. On Juneteenth this year, it celebrates the fruition of a project that speaks volumes about community agency and ownership, and how support from intermediaries, including LISC, can be profoundly transformative in building back stronger, and more equitably, than ever before.

D.C. Seniors Find a Supportive Home in New Affordable Assisted Living Community, with Help from LISC

A $2.1 million predevelopment loan from LISC helped Gragg Cardona Partners build The Residences at Kenilworth Park, an affordable housing complex adjacent to a wetlands preserve in Northeast D.C. offering supportive services for Medicaid-eligible and other qualified elderly residents 60 and older. The development meets high-quality accessibility standards and provides on-site certified nurses and aides, access to nature, community and nutritious food, among many other keys to well-being.

Pain into Purpose: Community Violence Intervention Workers Tell It Like It Is

For the second year in a row, the Department of Justice, in partnership with LISC, brought together hundreds of community violence intervention practitioners from across the country to share their experiences and insights on the front lines of gun violence and trauma. Their stories and wisdom are reshaping narratives about victimhood and perpetrators, and helping implement solutions to create safer, healthier communities.
