Event Description

When most nonprofit leaders first entered the field, their motivation was to create a better world for others. So now, with funding so scarce, being forced to choose between cuts in programs and employees feels like torture. How do you make such decisions? And how do you live with yourself afterwards?

In this session, two highly respected, veteran nonprofit leaders (Charlie Pillsbury and Chet Brodnicki) will share their experiences of tough times: how they made the required decisions; how they themselves survived intact; and what the perspective of years has taught them about living through difficult times.

CHET BRODNICKI, MSW, LCSW, is best known in New Haven for his 20+ years as executive director of Clifford Beers Clinic. More recently, Chet has served as interim executive director or CEO for Boys and Girls Village of Milford; Community Mediation, Inc.; and Family Life Education of Hartford. In addition, Chet volunteers as a reading tutor for first graders in a Hartford public school.

After twenty years as executive director of Community Mediation, Inc., in New Haven, CHARLIE PILLSBURY, JD, recently began serving as the first volunteer executive director of Mediators Beyond Borders ( In addition, Charlie was a founding board member of the National Association for Community Mediation and served as co-chair of its board from 1991-2001. Before joining Community Mediation, Charlie practiced law for 14 years in the New Haven area.

Setting the Stage for an Equitable Small Business Recovery

Since the onset of the pandemic, LISC has equipped 16,000 small business owners with relief and resilience grants. But to foster opportunity and long-term resiliency for all entrepreneurs who confront entrenched inequities, including people of color, women, immigrants and refugees, and people with lower incomes and wealth, we need a robust universe of small business “ecosystems”: the network of capital, services, and supports that every enterprise needs to get on its feet and grow.

Investing in Industry, Innovation & Infrastructure

As part of an ongoing blog series, LISC’s Anna Smukowski looks at the way LISC is advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) through a range of activities supported by LISC Impact Notes, including investments that support Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure.

Care First, Jails Last

Los Angeles County has selected LISC to implement key parts of an extraordinary initiative to provide alternatives to incarceration. The $61 million, two-year pilot is working to divert people from jail and instead offer services to help overcome housing instability and mental health and substance abuse challenges. It will also provide a model for how to turn the page on mass incarceration.
