Event Description

Today, Citywide Youth Coalition invites the public to experience a new look and a revitalized  outlook and outreach.  The success of an organization is evidenced by the dedication of the core members, and the ability to grow in initiative and inclusiveness.

Citywide Youth Coalition has much to celebrate with a new look that reflects the principles and outcome of our organization.  But beyond that, we hope to strengthen our organization with participation of individual community members, providing an added layer of  transparency and inclusiveness in decision-making and outcome.

“Citywide has been working in New Haven since 1976, to bring together after school programs and summer camps to better support youth, and now we see there is a role for everyone in our community to help all of the young people in our neighborhoods to succeed,” said Rachel Heerema, executive director.  

The Coalition has planned a Come Together Breakfast on September 21, an Youth Arts Celebration on October 22, and a workshop series for high school students and families in November called ‘College, Career & Beyond.’  “Seriously, everyone can contribute something - time, talent, an encouraging word, money - to support these kids.  They need us more than ever.”

American Banker Reports on LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund

A recent article in American Banker describes the why and how of LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund - a means to direct private capital to Black banks, CDFIs and other minority businesses. The $50 million from Netflix and Costco seeding the fund, with more in the pipeline, is a signal of a widespread “social-consciousness awakening that [the wealth gap] is a problem and its sources are systemic racism,” explains George Ashton, LISC EVP and the fund’s manager, in the story.

LISC, with Top Housing Groups, Calls for Emergency Rental Relief

In a statement issued today, LISC joins with Enterprise, National Housing Trust, Stewards of Affordable Housing for the Future, Housing Partnership Network, Housing Assistance Council and Leading Age to urge federal action on rental assistance that will protect residents and affordable housing providers affected by the pandemic. “Relief is overdue,” the groups warn, “and we can’t afford to wait any longer.”

A Pledge to Keep Small Businesses Open for Business

A $15 million donation from Wells Fargo, part of their Open for Business Fund, will help LISC match flexible Kiva crowdfunded loans for entrepreneurs of color across the U.S. Our pre-Covid collaboration with Wells and Kiva in Puerto Rico and other disinvested places has proven the transformative benefits for individuals, families and regional economies when small businesses get fast access to capital in a crisis.
