The Agency on Aging of South Central CT is committed to being an advocate for independence.
Programs focus on providing committed members of the community insight into resources available to their community’s seniors, individuals with disabilities and Veterans. Thus, allowing them to be empathetic and supportive of the challenges these individuals face in obtaining much needed services and a desire to maintain their independence for as long as possible.

The volunteer program focuses on supporting Children, Seniors, Individuals with disabilities and Veterans. By providing supports that assist them in maintaining their independence, improve their skills, gain confidence and accessing resources.

With the help of community and financial partners such as Kaiser, Comerica Bank, Citibank, James Irvine Foundation, and Wells Fargo, LISC LA has been able to shape impactful programs that forge resilient and inclusive communities of opportunity.
A new LISC research paper demonstrates how intensive community development initiatives in two rural regions of California sowed the seeds of stability and revitalization for local people and places. Co-author and LISC senior research associate Patricia Voltolini explains why these findings are so significant, and what they can teach practitioners, policy makers and local leaders about the imperative of investing in collaborative community-serving projects.
A group of experts, including Julia Ryan, LISC’s VP for Health Programs, gathered for a webinar hosted by U.S. News & World Report, to offer insight and solutions to tackling disparities in COVID vaccination distribution.
