Description Interest
D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to Succeed (D2S), Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) youth and family empowerment organization serving the Greater New Haven community since 2012. The mission of the organization is to enrich the lives of young people and families through affordable, creative, quality program opportunities. We prioritize serving low to moderate income persons, as this population most frequently faces barriers to education, employment and leadership advancement.

Our philosophy is that young people in Grades 7-12 and families are D.E.S.T.I.N.E.D. to succeed. We use the acronym to emphasize our vision, Desiring Every Student to Increase Necessary Educational Development.

Through our four Pillars of Excellence: Career Exploration, College Preparation, Leadership Development, and Life Skills, we provide a lens by which participants are addressing their ability to achieve lifelong, self-defined success.

Diving into the Deep, Hard + Imperative Work of Community Violence Intervention

As part of its partnership with the Department of Justice, LISC s supports practitioners and policy makers with best practices and overcoming challenges facing community violence intervention (CVI) work in American communities. An article from the National Criminal Justice Association highlights the many voices represented during a recent webinar for nearly 1,000 attendees, led by on-the-ground experts in violence intervention, researchers and DOJ leaders. The webinar is now part of a robust online resource center hosted by LISC and the DOJ’s Community Violence Intervention and Prevention Initiative.

Talking Financial Stability With LISC CEO Michael T. Pugh

In a wide-ranging radio interview with Audacy's On the Block 94.7, LISC CEO Michael T. Pugh unpacks the ways CDFIs, from the most local to the largest, are so well poised to support financial mobility. He also praises the role of good financial advice, and forecasts how AI can create alternative methods for building credit.

Empowering Agriculture: A Black-Owned Grain Storage Facility Marks New Era in Mississippi Delta Farming

Delta Diamond Ag stores and handles grains, a critical service for helping farmers bring their crops successfully to market. With a $500,000 loan from LISC’s Black Economic Development Fund, this rare African-American-owned facility is poised to change agriculture in the Delta. In recognition of Black History Month, we’re sharing this conversation with CEO Leigh Allen about how the company can serve area growers and the larger community, the importance of African-American representation in the agricultural supply chain, and his own deep affection for Delta farming.
