Event Description

A Piece of the Prevention Puzzle Workshop on October 1, 2014 from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm at Grassy Hill Lodge in Derby. A Piece of the Prevention Puzzle is a prevention workshop dedicated to providing members of the Lower Naugatuck Valley and Greater New Haven communities with the resources and tools to help address some of today’s most critical issues affecting our youth. The workshops are being led by nationally recognized experts in the field of prevention and are designed to provide practical knowledge and advice.

 

Guest speakers Scott Driscoll, Alicia Farrell, Ph.D. and Yifrah Kaminer, MD, MBA will focus on the hot topic of the legalization of marijuana and its effect on today’s youth along with internet safety. The workshop will also feature VSAAC’s Community Champion Awards. The awards are given to those in the community who take action and effect change in the field of substance abuse prevention and/or intervention activities.  The awards spotlight and applaud the work that is being done to help prevent substance abuse on the grass-roots, community level - work that is absolutely critical to VSAAC’s efforts to keep our kids safe from alcohol, tobacco, drug use, suicide, risky behaviors, and promote good mental health in the Lower Naugatuck Valley, Greater New Haven and surrounding communities.

 

The cost of the workshop is $25.00 and CEUs are available. To learn more or register, please visit www.vsaac.org. Registration deadline is September 22, 2014.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
