TCI has a budget of nearly $40 million and 500 staff. Its mission is Building Safe, Healthy, Caring Communities and Inspiring People to Reach Their Full Potential as Productive and Valued Citizens. The agency was formed by volunteers in 1972 as a community response to the problems of abuse, neglect, addiction, and crime. Its first program was Connection House, a single halfway house in Middletown for people leaving prison. Today TCI has an expanded range of services that fall into four primary areas: Behavioral Health, Community Justice, Supportive Housing, and Women and Children’s Services. TCI’s 41 programs include a homeless shelter, a foster-care program, alternative-to-incarceration centers, six substance-abuse and mental-health outpatient clinics, and a dozen residential programs for clients ranging from former offenders to women with a history of substance use who are pregnant or have children.

New Haven programs include residential and supportive housing programs for individuals and families suffering from chronic mental illness and addictions, a City-Wide Outreach & Engagement Project for homeless adults, a large Supportive Housing for Families program, a wide array of community justice programs including the Elm City Women & Children's Center, the Sierra Pre- and post-trial Centers, the REACH (Re-Entry Assisted Community Housing); and Roger Sherman House. State-mandated Pretrial Driving While Intoxicated and Drug Education Programs, outpatient clinical services, school-based prevention programs.

Claire - what a cute picture! I really like this site because it encompasses all groups in New Haven without being impersonal like Facebook. Looking forward to Friday!

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.
