Event Description

Community Action Agency of New Haven (CAANH) is holding its 1st Passport to Prosperity Walk & Activity Day on October 4th at 419 Whalley Avenue, New Haven. The day kicks off with a 3 mile walk at 10am and continues with games, food, music and vendors until 4pm. The purpose for this event is to increase conversations and inspire action regarding opportunities and prosperity for low-income and working class families.

Passport to Prosperity is CAANH’s program that provides a network of comprehensive, client- centered services to CAANH's youth and families. The ‘passport’ serves as a catalyst for acquiring knowledge, skills, and partnerships that improve lives and helps clients move toward self-sufficiency.

The mission of CAANH is to offer pathways to prosperity to those in poverty in the Greater New Haven area through Service, Collaboration, Advocacy, and Knowledge Generation.

Foreclosure Risk is Growing, With No Relief in Sight

Homeowners and small landlords are under mounting pressure, as lost income related to COVID-19 leaves them with month after month of unpaid debt and limited ability to catch up. The loss of wealth could impact the next generation and beyond, especially in communities of color, warns LISC’s Denise Scott. “Just as COVID-19 is having a disproportionate impact on the health of Black and Brown families, so too is it exacerbating our racial wealth gap, which already saps so much from our national potential.”

Unlocking Corporate Treasuries for Racial Equity: A Podcast with LISC's George Ashton

George Ashton III, who oversees LISC's Strategic Investments department, joined a recent episode of the podcast Money + Meaning to discuss LISC's Black Economic Development Fund. The conversation delved into the growth of CDFIs and their role in economic development and how more corporations can direct their capital towards systems change that promotes racial equity.

How CDFIs and the UN Can Align the Measure of their Common Goals

By adopting a set of universal benchmarks established by the United Nations—the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs—Community Development Financial Institutions can streamline the way they measure and demonstrate the investments they've been making for decades to help create equity and wellbeing for people and places in the United States. A blog by LISC's Anna Smukowski and the OFN's Andrea Longton explains how and why.
